Tom Hoyle, Co-Founder of Siren said, “Sean Paul is an international superstar and one of the biggest names in dancehall music so having him on the Siren stage this summer is an incredible honour. He’s an act whose output over the last 20 years has connected with so many different audiences and we’re really excited to be bringing him to Bristol for the first time in over 12 years!”


From the founding moments of jungle and drum and bass to reshaping seminal underground music for the globe’s festival stages, each act brings a distinctive energy from their corner of the industry. This three-day spectacle in dance music also celebrates the two-year anniversary of Siren.

Watershed screening Rye Lane!

Come to Watershed to see Raine Allen-Miller’s feature directorial debut Rye Lane, a charming take on the modern-day rom-com set in South London.

The film is a colourful homage to Peckham and the surrounding areas; bringing to life its history, its people and its multicultural influences through what critics are touting to be one of the best rom-com stories of the decade.

“Take the plot of one of Richard Linklater’s Before movies, combine it with the eye-popping aesthetic of Wes Anderson, then set it within the ethnically diverse, highly photogenic South London enclave of Peckham, and you’ll wind up with Rye Lane.” The Hollywood Reporter


Rye Lane opens on Fri 17 March.
The Fri 17 March 17:40 screening will be presented with an exclusive pre-recorded Q&A with director Raine Allen-Miller herself, brought to you by #ReclaimTheFrame, bringing a broader perspective of the world by championing cinema by women & non-binary filmmakers.
