Outdoor Cinema – Under A Meteor Shower!

Fri, 11th & Sat, 12th August – 8pm – Close Encounters & Dirty Dancing – Screen on the Green

The Perseid Meteor Shower is expected to peak this weekend so why not head outdoors, get comfy under a blanket and watch a classic film while shooting stars fly overhead…. Ok, so we can’t guarantee you’ll see any meteors but you will be on top of a hill which has to help right?

We went to see The Princess Bride on the green and we loved it but we do recommend bringing lots of blankets & cushions! This time round, for a little extra, you can even get a ticket that includes pizza which will be delivered to you just before the film starts.

Book tickets now – they were completely sold out last time!
