Charity Abseil: iDrop Special Events On March 17th 2018, for the first time, the British Airways i360 will be opening the pod doors while you’re at the top of the tower and allowing thrill-seeking members of the public to abseil back down again. iDrop will be operated by Belay Ropes Access and is open to the first 30 people to sign up who can raise a minimum £1,000* each in sponsorship for Rockinghorse Children's Charity. Two levels of challenge will be available – manual and mechanical descent (the former being considered more difficult). “The sheer exposure of British Airways i360 is what makes it special because unlike other abseil venues you are descending in open space rather than against a wall. And the position on the seafront makes it unique. I would challenge anyone not to feel a few nerves when faced with a 450ft drop, so even for experienced people this will present a fearsome challenge.” Belay Ropes Access Director Iain Tindall. or by contacting the box office on 0844 847 1538.

Jaws In Concert Watch the film in full accompanied by the Czech National Orchestra at The Dome on Thursday 12th April 2018. Steven Spielberg’s original summer movie blockbuster Jaws will be screened across the country in April 2018 accompanied by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra who will perform John Williams’ Academy Award®-winning score live and in sync to the picture. The regional tour follows four hugely successful performances at the Royal Albert Hall at the weekend, as well as numerous engagements across the US. Based on the best-selling novel by Peter Benchley, this masterpiece of suspense tells the tale of a small New England seaside community terrorised by a predatory great white shark. Upon its release, Jaws became the most successful movie of all time, and Spielberg has often credited Williams’ iconic score with much of the film’s success. Now audiences will have the chance to experience the power of a live symphony orchestra performing the entire score in sync with one of the greatest motion pictures of all time – the ultimate film-with-live-orchestra experience!
