Dusk & Duchy
Escape your house and excite your senses (safely) at one of our socially distanced Events in 2021. Combining live music, cinematic entertainment and comedy to create extraordinary experiences!
We have been busy creating socially distanced drive-in experiences that allow you to enjoy live music and cinematic entertainment safely.
All ticket holders will be assigned a pitch where they park up for the evening. Not to worry there will be food and refreshments, so take a load off and leave it to us.
You can rely on us to get you through the lock-down blues.
Dusk & Duchy emerged as two Sussex University students excited to create events they would like to go to themselves. At first it began with organising events for our friends; first a charity masquerade ball, next an open air cinema.
Once COVID hit, our calendar for future events emptied. Faced with the prospect of being locked away, we went to work creating COVID-safe entertainment in the form of Drive-Ins.
After a fast paced summer of creating Drive-in Cinema and Live Music Gigs, we have gained the experience, contacts and confidence to grow our business in this strange and dynamic time.
What drives us? Not only the threat to the performing arts sector, but the great fun we have putting the events on. We believe it is vital to adapt to the current circumstances, and provide much needed COVID-safe entertainment. To us, it's a bonus that we have a blast doing it!
We have many very exciting plans for the coming years, so watch this space!
