More Information

Join us for an exciting series of participatory, public events to celebrate the world's greatest cycling race which visits Yorkshire this year.

On 9 May YSP and Electric Pedals will present a spectacular outdoor film screening event in the grounds of the Park, powered by energy supplied through pedal power. All of the electricity for the screening will be produced by a rotating team of volunteer cyclists from the audience, creating a unique experience whilst encouraging people to think about their energy consumption.

YSP will screen The Triplets of Belleville (French: Les Triplettes de Belleville) a 2003 animated comedy film. The Triplets of Belleville tells the story of Madame Souza, an elderly woman who goes on a quest to rescue her grandson Champion, a cyclist who has been kidnapped and made to race on a mechanical stationary cycling machine – just like the YSP audience will need to do to generate the electricity to screen the film in the open air. 

Film rated PG 12.
(some material may not be suitable for under 11 year olds)
