Frequently Asked Questions

What do we sit on?

Most people tend to bring folding chairs or blankets but you’re more than welcome to bring whatever is comfortable.
There’s a blanket-zone at the front of the seating area to make sure all blanket-bearers get a good view!
Please bear in mind if it has rained before the event then the ground may still be damp.

Make sure you dress up warm and bring anything which may make your evening more comfortable. How about bringing a blanket, thick socks to stop your tootsies from getting cold and maybe a torch for the walk home?

Can I use my own headphones?

No, we have specialist headphones that work via radio transmission. Please note that we require a £10 CASH DEPOSIT
When you arrive on site, set up your spot in front of the screen,  then pop over to the marquee where you can scan your tickets, pick up a drink, some popcorn and exchange your £10 CASH deposit for a set of wireless headphones.

Are there toilets on-site?

Yes! Not to worry, we will have plenty of facilities on site, including toilets with disabled access.

We will have a wonderful caterer on site at each event! Catering options for the event you are attending will be included on the respective location and Facebook page closer to the time of the event.

At the marquee, we will be selling popcorn, crisps and sweets to snack on during the movie, as well as having a well-stocked bar of soft drinks, beer, cider, wine, and of course the feel-good summer staple PROSECCO!

Can I bring my own food & drink?

Yes, we only ask that you refrain from bringing glass and hard liquor to the event.

Attendees agree to take responsibility for the health, safety, and security of the items they bring.

Can I buy tickets on the night?

Yes, as long as the event is not sold out! Tickets will be available online until the movie starts, or you can buy tickets on the door when you arrive. However, we would reccommend buying online, so as not to risk being turned away on the night!

Please note that OTD tickets are cash only and cost £15 for adults and £8 for children.

Can I pay by card?

Our marquee is CASH ONLY! This includes all snacks and drinks as well as the headphone deposit.
The on-site caterers may have other payment options. Contact them directly for more information.

Can I smoke?

If you smoke or vape during the event please pop yourself at the back and away from others.  Please also put your cigarettes into the ashtrays/bins provided.

What happens if it rains?

The show must go on! If rain is in the forecast, we encourage attendees to bring tents/gazebos. Please ensure these are properly pinned down!
Stewards will be on hand to make sure that everyone is comfortable and gets a good view of the screen.

In the unlikely event that the weather becomes unsafe, we will postpone the event. In this case we will contact the attendees with the option to either transfer their ticket to the new date or recieve a refund.

What do I do with my litter?

Either take it with you or make use of the abundence of bins on site!
This event has been able to go ahead with the approval and enthusiasm of your town council.  Please respect the land and leave it in the beautiful way that you find it. 

What about the noise?

Our events have everyone in mind. The headphones mean that the local neighbours and wildlife aren’t disturbed.
That being said, remember that when you want to chat with your friends sitting around you, you are wearing headphones!  Although you may not be able to hear your own voice the rest of the area will!
Events like these are able to continue as long as the local neighbours are happy.  When leaving please keep the noise to a respectable level!

Will there be disablility access?

Most of our events are held in public parks, so access is open to all. Occasionally, we hold an event in a school or leisure center. In that case, please contact the venue directly to find out more about their access.

If you use any personal medical devices (including but not limited to a pacemaker), please consult your doctor to determine whether the use of the headphones/transmitters could possibly effect your medical device.
