We screened a film with great pleasure about the history of the Thanet Road Club at our inaugural festival five years ago. This year we have the International Premiere Screening of PHIL LIGGETT: THE VOICE OF CYCLING at the Ramsgate International Film & TV Festival. The festival will be running online due to the current situation and the difficulty or organising a physical festival successfully.

Saturday 5 June – 18.15 – PHIL LIGGETT: THE VOICE OF CYCLING – Screen 1

The Ramsgate International Film & TV Festival presents the International Premiere in association with Pro Cycling Outlet of Phil Liggett: The Voice of Cycling, directed by Nickolas Bird and Eleanor Sharpe, the team behind the acclaimed documentary Mamil. In competition for the Anchor Awards, ‘Phil Liggett: the Voice of Cycling’ tells the life of legendary television commentator Phil Liggett MBE, inextricably entwined with the history of professional cycling. During a career that has spanned five decades, 15 Olympic games and 47 Tours de France, Phil Liggett has been there for every key moment in cycling over the last half century. The heroic triumphs, the appalling tragedies, the scandals and the controversies; Phil has seen it all, and told us about it with passion, knowledge and his trademark wit. As much as anyone, Phil Liggett has shaped the way the world sees cycling.

The screening, which will take place on Saturday June 5, at 18.15 on Ramsgate Digital Cinema will be followed by a live Q&A with the Directors and Phil Liggett himself.

Tickets are FREE but must be pre-booked on www.ramsgatedigitalcinema.co.uk from June 1st (donations welcome).

Thanks to the Ramsgate International Film & TV Festival.
