    Celebrating director Ken Russell's first ever feature film, which was set in Herne Bay, and came out 50 years ago. The beach, bandstand and pier recognizably starred in the film, and many Herne Bay residents were extras. It became an international cult classic, featuring styles and themes associated with Russell's later films - the cause of so much outrage in their day.

    An exhibition of original photos and posters.
