Full schedule 

5 August 2020
Notting Hill (15)
Doors open: 19:30, film starts: 21:00 

Up first is the classic British rom-com, Notting Hill. Starring Hugh Grant as a charming Englishman that sweeps an American movie star, played by Julia Roberts, off her feet in a whirlwind romance, and with a stunning comic turn by Rhys Ifans as the hapless flatmate, this is the perfect feel-good film for a balmy summers evening.

6 August 2020
Rocketman (15) 
Doors open: 19:30, film starts: 21:00 

Following Notting Hill, we've got Taron Egerton bringing his take on Elton John in Rocketman. Featuring a whole host of Elton's biggest hits, including the Best Original Song Oscar winner, follow him on his journey from London to LA, with all the highs and lows in between, in a film that will get the whole place rocking.

7 August 2020
Pretty Woman (15) 
Doors open: 19:30, film starts: 21:00

Finally, we have Pretty Woman. Starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere in some of their seminal roles, this follows the story of two unlikely lovers who find that fairy tales can come true. With some truly laugh out loud moments, and iconic quotes, this film will have you rooting for the couple all the way through.

There will be a full bar on site, serving everything from beer to bubbles, including hot and non-alcoholic drinks, as well as our fantastic gourmet street food traders. Feel free to bring a picnic with you to enjoy before the film.
