We are really excited to be able to bring the Big Screen back this summer.  

Grab your blankets, pack a picnic and head to one of two locations, then just sit back and relax whilst watching some old favourites alongside new blockbusters.

The Big Screen is FREE and no booking is required, just turn up and enjoy the outdoor cinema experience!

Toilet facilities are available at each site:

Unfortunately we can’t control the weather! You are permitted to bring mini beach shelters or umbrellas to seek shade from the sun (or rain!) However these will not be permitted for use if it is very windy.  You may be asked to move towards the back of the site if your shelter is obstructing the view of others.  Screenings will only be cancelled if weather conditions make the event dangerous e.g extremely high winds.


Please do not attend if you have any Covid-19 symptoms.  Ensure you wash or sanitise your hands at regular intervals.
