DDC Media Release:
Watch family favourites on the big screen at Daventry Country Park this summer with the return of the annual Cinema Day.
The event takes place on August 3 when families can enjoy Peter Rabbit, Mary Poppins Returns and The Greatest Showman for free.
The Park’s Reservoir Café and J18 Street Food will run stalls offering a variety of hot and cold food and refreshments, though people are also welcome to bring picnics and refreshments with them.
There will be a range of stalls as well as children’s entertainment including bouncy castles and face painting, available for a small charge.
Gates open at 10.30am, with Peter Rabbit (PG) being shown at 11am, Mary Poppins Returns (U) at 1pm and The Greatest Showman (PG) at 4pm.
The car park will be open as normal but is likely to fill quickly, so people are encouraged to walk to the park where possible, or make use of the free car park near the Council offices in Lodge Road (NN11 4FP).
This 9th annual Family Cinema Day is organised by Daventry District Council and sponsored by Crest Nicholson.
Councillor Alan Hills, Portfolio Holder for Community, Culture and Leisure at Daventry District Council, said: “The Family Cinema Day is one of the park’s most popular annual events, and it’s wonderful to see so many families and friends coming together to enjoy a day of entertainment. We’ve got a great selection of films to suit people of all ages, so please join us for what promises to be another fantastic free event at our wonderful Country Park.”
