A new feature documentary, tells the compelling tale of bees by the billions making America’s food supply possible.

Thousands of semi-trailers crisscross the country in the dead of night delivering goods through the darkness to stores, warehouses and factories nationwide. But some of them carry an unsuspected and highly unusual cargo. Honey bees. Tens of billions of them are transported back and forth from one end of the United States to the other in a unique annual migration that’s indispensable to the feeding of America. One out of every three bites we eat, the growth of almost all our fruits, nuts and vegetables, would be impossible without pollination from bees.

A new documentary feature, THE POLLINATORS, directed by Peter Nelson and produced by Sally Roy, Nelson and Michael Reuter, presents the fascinating and untold story. And warns that the bees are in serious danger. Suitable for all ages, THE POLLINATORS is hoped to be screened in the QPT outdoor amphitheatre, weather permitting - going inside if weather is inclement on the day.

Children under 2 are permitted free of charge but must sit on the lap of adults looking after them.

The viewing CAPACITY of the outdoor amphitheatre is LIMITED to 400 places...!!! so be quick to secure your seats.

QPT Bar will be open from 6pm, strictly NO BYO. You may bring your picnic to eat in the amphitheatre.
