Saturday 11 January - LIVE introduction by comedian Bec Hill

Good natured Monsieur Hulot visits a beachside hotel to relax on his vacation - but it seems like accidents and misunderstandings follow Hulot wherever he goes, no matter how well intentioned his actions are.

'There are some real laughs in it, but Mr. Hulot's Holiday gives us something rarer, an amused affection for human nature -- so odd, so valuable, so particular' - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times

Australian-born (and now London-based) Bec Hill has gained a cult following in Australia, the UK and Ireland thanks to her award-winning solo shows, Twitter presence and popular YouTube videos. She has a talent for incorporating arts and crafts into her stand-up routines, creating a unique and unforgettable comedy style that she calls “paper-puppetry”. Bec is the voice of several characters in "Mass Effect: Andromeda” and appeared in several series of CBBC's “The Dog Ate My Homework”.

"Hill is a multi-coloured ray of eternal sunshine, in a world of pain and darkness, her total lack of cynicism is refreshing" - The Scotsman 2017
