On New Year’s Eve 1999, Coventry held its breath as Frenchman Ramon Kelvink stepped off the spire of Holy Trinity Church and tightrope walked his way above the city and into the history books. 20 years to the day later, come and relive that unforgettable night with the first public screening since 200 of the film, made by Talking Birds, of Coventry’s Millennium Party, alongside film short Girl With A Movie Camera and a performance of the Tightrope Prelude by Derek Nisbet, specially commissioned for the original event, and played live on the mighty Cathedral organ by Kerry Beaumont.
