Bristol Bad Film Club: 24 Hour Bad Movie Marathon

24 Hour Bad Movie Marathon for BBC Children in Need because bad films can do good!

raised by 35 supporters

BBC Children in Need

We fund people, projects and charities to change young lives in the UK

Charity Registration No. 802052 (England, Wales) SC039557 (Scotland)


On 7th November, we're going to attempt something we've never done before - a non-stop 24-hour bad movie marathon that will test both our physical and mental limits. Mostly, our mental limits...

The rules are few:

  1. No sleeping
  2. Toilet breaks must not last longer than 5 mins
  3. Breaking of rules will result in monetary fines (which will go to Children In Need)
  4. Leaving before the 24 hours is over will result in a flat £50 fine

On the day itself, we'll be live-blogging and tweeting (possibly even streaming) our progress - it'll probably get incoherent and non-nonsensical after the first 12 hours.

However, we welcome members of the public to either join in with us, either by watching the films at home or dropping in for a few hours and keeping us company! All we ask is you throw some money in the charity bucket!
