ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

 

A kaleidoscopic and unique insight into Sussex at the turn of the century...

On their four day odyssey, they travel 92 miles and drink 300 pints of beer! They quarrel, laugh and sing as they recount the legends of the Downs, speak of their first loves and meet some remarkable characters along the way!
