Win a Tally Ho! cycle tour of historic Ealing comedy film locations followed by free screening of ‘Hue and Cry’ at Vintage at Southbank festival
Ahead of their 60th anniversary Blu-ray debuts, a trio of classic Ealing comedies are re-released in cinemas over the coming weeks. First out of the traps is the crazed cockney caper ‘The Lavender Hill Mob’ (above) by Charles Crichton (out today), followed by Alexander Mackendrick’s eccentric booze heist ‘Whiskey Galore!’ (July 29), and Robert Hamer’s sublime class satire ‘Kind Hearts and Coronets’ (August 19). In celebration of all this, Optimum Releasing have teamed up with Tally Ho! Cycle tours and Wayne Hemingway’s upcoming festival, Vintage at Southbank Centre, to offer the chance to visit some of the London locations featured in these films on a bike. We have a pair of tickets to give away for a cycle tour with British Cinema expert Richard Dacre around locations from ‘Hue and Cry’. The tour takes place on July 29 at 4pm and finishes on the South Bank in time for a free screening of the film on the Vintage film bus. (Riders must be over 5ft tall to participate). To enter, complete the following: ‘My favourite film location in London is….because….’. Leave your comment below by 6pm on July 26 and the best answer – as deemed by all at Tally Ho! – will be contacted by email and invited along with a friend for a thoroughly entertaining ride.
