Free outdoor cinema in Wychavon this weekend
Free outdoor cinema events are taking place across Wychavon this weekend.
Classic films are being show on a ten-metre inflatable screen on the following dates:
- Monsters Inc, Abbey Park, Pershore, 8pm on Friday, 4 September 2020
- The Lion King, King George V Playing Fields, Droitwich Spa, 8pm, Saturday, 5 September
- The Greatest Showman, Corporation Meadow, Evesham, 8pm, Sunday, 6 September
No booking is required but people will need to bring their own chair or blanket. Social distancing measures must also be followed including keeping a safe distance apart and attending with members of only two households of any size, or up to 6 people from different households.
Markers will be put on the ground and stewards will be available to help people find a safe place to sit.
Visitors are encouraged to dine out in one of the many restaurants, pubs and cafes in each town before attending the event or use local businesses to make up their own picnic. Parking is free in all Wychavon car parks after 6pm.
The events are being funded by Wychavon with support from Number 8 in Pershore, the Norbury Theatre, in Droitwich and the Regal Cinema in Evesham.
They are part of Wychavon's continuing efforts to support the local economy as it recovers from the impact of coronavirus and to provide opportunities for people to #EnjoyWychavonSafely.
Cllr Richard Morris, Executive Board Member for Economic Growth and Tourism, on Wychavon District Council, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for people to enjoy a night out watching some classic films in the surroundings of our beautiful, award-winning parks and open spaces. The weather forecast is good and we're all looking forward to a great evening.
"It is also a chance to promote the wonderful arts, cinema and live performance venues we have available in Wychavon and we hope people will go out and support them when they restart their programmes."
