Imposing cliffs on the Isle of Wight are to be transformed into an enormous projector screen as parts of events to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

While parties and celebrations are staged in the picturesque Freshwater Bay, the cliffs above will display a film to mark the event made by local resident and short film maker, Paul Windridge.

He told the Isle of Wight County Press that the pale rock face is an ideal background to be used as a natural screen.

“The Jubilee party will be down on the bay and that gave me the opportunity to try projecting film onto the cliffs above the bay, which of course provides a white background,” he explained.

The projection will be part of a day of celebrations being held on 4 June this year. One of the organisers, Becca Cameron, said that it was a perfect opportunity to highlight the work of local creative people.

“We recently got together as a group to form Seawall to help publicise the work of our fabulous local artists,” she said. “Now we are working with the residents of Freshwater Bay to organise a packed day of events for the local community – although it is not solely connected with art.”
