I enclose a message from the publicist for the Balvenie-Morgan relationship. Please note that to be included you will need to email her as below.
This Summer, The Balvenie and Morgan Motors will once again come together to see a convoy of Morgan cars travel from London to Brighton to reach its destination for an outdoor screening of two very special films. The films, The Intelligent Hand and The Balvenie Morgan are centred around a theme which is at the heart of both companies – craftsmanship. Both The Balvenie and Morgan Motors remain true to their handcrafted heritage and many treasure these unique brands due to this approach and the craftsmanship involved in each new release/creation.
I’m getting in touch to let you know about this special screening event which will take place outdoors at Brighton College on Sunday 16th August (we will move indoors should the weather be less than lovely!). The convoy will depart London mid morning arriving at Brighton College for lunch at 1.30pm. There will be a complimentary BBQ and samples of whisky from The Balvenie (these are for non drivers only) to enjoy during the screenings.
Thank you for your time and we hope you can join us! Julia Ward

Can I just meet you at Brighton College with my Morgan and not join the convoy from London?
Yes, but please RSVP to let us know and note the arrival times at Brighton College.
Can I bring guests in my car?
Absolutely. Please bring as many guests as your handcrafted car will fit!
If I don’t have a Morgan can I still join?
Yes, but this is a celebration of all things handcrafted so while you are welcome to join, Morgan cars will be given priority for the drive-in screening.
What is being screened?
We will show two short films that celebrate Craftsmanship. The first is The Intelligent Hand, a documentary about craftsmen around the world and their dedication to their work. The second is the making of The Balvenie Morgan, giving a unique insight into life at the factory.
Non drivers and Brightonian’s wanting to join –
If you are local to Brighton or simply want to join us for a BBQ and watch the films, you are welcome. There is space on the green to sit down, but it is recommended you bring a picnic blanket. Again, places are limited so you must RSVP to attend.
Drink Driving –
We take our duty to enforce responsible drinking very seriously. On arrival, you will be asked to name the designated driver and they will be refused service from the bar. We ask that all drivers taking part adhere to the no drinking rule.
We will have non-alcoholic options available and any guests of drivers are of course welcome to sample The Balvenie whisky.
