Events at Depot

From 25 November

There really is nothing quite like Christmas, and for us at Depot, that means we get to bring Lewes the best selection of festive classics, as well as a range of exciting new releases and events to get you in the spirit!

Sunday 11 December

Followed by Q&A with director Dylan Howitt and Allan Brown

Textile artist Allan Brown spends seven years making a dress by hand from foraged stinging nettles, all picked on the South Downs near Brighton. This is ‘hedgerow couture’, the greenest of slow fashion. It’s also his medicine, the way he survives the death of his wife that left him and his four children bereft.

Beautifully filmed by award-winning documentary maker Dylan Howitt, The Nettle Dress follows Allan along the whole seven-year journey.

Wednesday 14 December

Live Q&A with Director Phil Grabsky

Edward Hopper’s work is the most recognisable art in America – popular, praised, and mysterious. Countless painters, photographers, filmmakers and musicians have been influenced by his art – but who was he, and how did a struggling illustrator create such a bounty of notable work?

Friday 23  December

 National Lottery players will have the chance to visit the cinema for free for a special screening of the classic British Christmas movie Love Actually, with drinks and snacks included!

Monday 16 January 2023

Post-screening live Q&A with director Mark Jenkin

On a remote island off the Cornish coast, a volunteer environmentalist records daily observations about a rare flower growing near the cliff edge. But as changes suddenly appear on the plant she is studying, the boundaries between reality and fantasy begin to blur, plunging the volunteer into a nightmarish, metaphysical dreamscape.

Thursday 26 January

The Oregon wine industry is overshadowed by California and Napa Valley but produces some of the world’s best wines. Only 4% of Oregon wine is exported beyond the United States and only a couple of dozen brands are available in the UK. With great tenacity the Depot wine team have tracked down a selection of first rate wines for this rare tasting opportunity.

Depot Chair of Trustees and wine enthusiast Robert Senior will take you through four flights of wines and lead the tasting discussions.

Come and experience the glamour of classic Hollywood in the centre of Lewes.

Robert’s Bar is our chic new venue at Depot where you can enjoy a fabulous evening of classic cocktails created for you by our trained bartenders – every Friday.

It will also be the setting for an exciting series of wine tasting events held at Depot – a perfect night out, whether you’re a self-proclaimed aficionado, or simply curious to learn more about the alluring world of wine.
