    Went to the preview last night!! Awesome venue, good food, beer on tap, great coffee and the films were excellent – that is to say I enjoyed all of them.

    One film in particular about mountain usage was of particular interest to me “loving the mountain to death”.

    Be sure not to miss out – tickets available at
