Co-founder and Sol Cinema projectionist Paul O’Connor stated; “Following 2 years of no performing, Sol Cinema is excited about showing off our usherettes at Glastonbury. It is the mother of all festivals and we have a range of new short videos to show off. In the last 12 years we have taken Sol Cinema into fields, factories, schools, city centres, on a farm and even in a Zoo.

“Being mobile, we can squeeze into the smallest spots and entertain with short films and our stylish street performers.”

Sol Cinema will be showing short Independent films every day during Glastonbury Festival. Sol Cinema performed in Rhyl earlier this month and will be at the Big Tent Event in Oxwich, Gower in July.

The Sol Cinema has created by upcycling a 1972 caravan which was being used to house chickens on a small holding. Artist Jo Furlong added plush seating, LED lighting and a projector combined with surround sound to create the unique mobile venue. To boost it’s environmental credentials further the cinema is powered entirely by solar energy.

The Sol Cinema won a Digital Hero award for best use of sustainable technology. It also won a Network Wales award for best communication project.
