The Floating Cinema will be making its grand venture through England's canals during its tour: Looping the Locks, Brentford to Bristol and Back Again.

The tour will be The Floating Cinema's first venture outside the capital, and will feature free films, bank-side screenings, workshops and talks.

The Brentford events will be taking place from Thursday June 4 to Saturday June 6, and will include sound workshops, film, live music and on-board screenings.

As well as the exciting launch of the tour - running from June 4 to Tuesday August 2 - the workshops aim to explore the culture and history of the area, with archived footage of Brentford.

There will also be the opportunity to collect and record the sounds and noises of the surroundings with sound artist Yann Seznec to create a "sound library" of the area.

A spokeswoman for the event said: "The action-packed events programme will screen rarely seen film from local archives, alongside features and historic canal classics. It will also present artist talks and hands-on educational activities for all ages. The events, both on-board and on land, will explore the histories, myths and legends along the route.

"The 'On Tour' theme celebrates and explores the rich diversity of urban and rural living, a slower pace of life and encourages a playful discovery of local landscapes and heritage through archive film and sound."

The Floating Cinema's curator, Laura Harford, said: "We are delighted to be taking The Floating Cinema on its first national tour and to be working with a new network of supportive funders and partners.

"Our events programme promises to delight and surprise and we hope it will inspire visitors to champion their local waterway as a place for culture as well as recreation and leisure."
