Adapted by award-winning writer Laura Turner, this lively tale follows the sisters as they fall in love, make mistakes and experience heartbreak for the first time in their quest to find a balance between sense and sensibility.

    QUAD Summer Nights Outdoor Film Festival

    Return to the garden at the end of the summer for QUAD’s Outdoor Film Festival. Spend the evening under the stars watching classic films in the perfect summer setting. Choose from Moulin Rouge on Friday 31 Augustand Top Gun on Saturday 1 September.

    Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge captures the spirit of the Bohemian revolution sweeping the underworld of Paris. At the Moulin Rouge, the rich and poor are one, being entertained by the dancers. Christian (Ewan McGregor), a young English writer starts a love affair with the star courtesan Sabine (Nicole Kidman). Top Gun takes us into the danger zone with Tom Cruise and Anthony Edwards starring as fighter pilots Maverick and Goose.
