Movies and Music Weekend planned for August Bank Holiday weekend

Chichester Festival Theatre and Chichester Cinema at New Park are working together to produce a Drive-In Cinema in Northgate car park over the August Bank Holiday weekend (28 – 31 August), alongside other outdoor events in Oaklands Park.

The plans are subject to government guidelines permitting large gatherings outdoors, at a social distance, in three months’ time. Arrangements will be put in place for the necessary social distancing, and all rules and guidelines prevalent at the time will be strictly adhered to throughout the event. The event is being planned with the co-operation and support of Chichester District Council.

The Movies and Music Weekend will screen a programme of popular and classic movies to appeal to family and general audiences, who will watch them from their vehicles with the sound coming through their car radios (provision will also be made for bicycles and motorcycles).

All being well, tickets will go on sale from 30 July at www.cft.org.uk and www.chichestercinema.org when the full programme for the weekend will be available.
