Friday May 5th: Archive Footage of Plymouth

The magical ship Kaskelot will float into Sutton Harbour, its sails alight with colour and animated by projection.

As night falls the ship will burst into colour, lighting the harbour view with old footage of Plymouth’s hidden past. Discover your harbour’s old stories, its local characters and their strange pursuits!

The Kaskelot will be open from 10am-10pm on Friday the 5th of May, and 10am – 5pm on Saturday the 6th.

Don’t miss this one-night-only screening of Wes Anderson’s cult classic The Life Aquatic as the ship transforms into an expanded cinema, with performance and aerial circus high in the ship’s rigging, and projected archive footage of Plymouth’s coastal past.

Settle down on the water’s edge to discover some of your harbour’s stories, characters and history, and prepare for one of the nation’s best-loved films, screened in a spectacle you will remember forever…
