The first Lebowski Fest in the UK will be held in Edinburgh on 24th August and London on 30th August, shortly after the publication of I’m a Lebowski, You’re a Lebowski, The Ultimate Guide to the Coen Brother’s Classic Film.

In 1998, the Coen Brothers followed the global success of their smash hit Fargo with a rambling tale of lies, corruption and bowling in early 90s L.A. – The Big Lebowski. In the years that followed, the movie took on a life of its own, spawning a culture of quotable lines, White Russians and Lebowski Fest, an annual event attracting thousands of Big Lebowski fans from across the globe.

What began as a small gathering of fans in a bowling alley in Louisville, Kentucky in 2002, has grown into an international phenomenon known as ‘Lebowski Fest’. After holding sell-out events across the US, Lebowski Fest heads to the UK. Lebowski Fest is a bowling event celebrating all things relating to the Coen Brothers 1998 film, The Big Lebowski. The event takes place at a bowling alley and includes unlimited bowling, costume, trivia, bowling contests, prizes, and what-have-you. Actors and fans turn up and drink White Russians.
