Adventure Cinema, the UK’s biggest touring outdoor cinema company has announced the arrival of Film & Food Fest: a brand-new touring festival for summer 2021.
Visiting 15 major city parks across the UK, the socially spacious festival will be the first event of its kind, featuring four days of outdoor cinema with classic movies and recent releases, stand-up comedy from some of the UK’s best-loved comedians, local street food from each city and specially curated short films from regional film makers in each location.
Heading to Liverpool this August, the event is set to be the ultimate summer staycation, with adult tickets starting at £16.50 + booking fee. Afternoon showings, children 12 years and under, go half-price (plus booking fee).
To ensure the safety of its events, Film & Food Fest will be taking place exclusively in socially spacious, outdoor venues across the country. There will also be other measures in place, meaning the festival will be 100-per-cent compliant with government safety guidelines.
Thursday evening of Film & Food Fest will feature a special showcase of short movies from some of the UK’s finest independent filmmakers. Different in each region, the showcase will highlight the work of local creatives, giving their films a major platform, and giving audiences an exclusive chance to see some fantastic new cinema. £2 from every ticket sold for the short film nights will also be used to support local film organisations within each city.
Saturday and Sunday afternoon will be reserved for fantastic family films, with classics like The Lion King and The Goonies, and modern favourites like The Greatest Showman Sing-along, Onward and Doolittle. There will also be mouth-watering street food from local traders, curated by Street Food Warehouse.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening will feature fantastic live comedy from some of the UK’s most exciting comedians, followed by blockbuster movies. With a varied mix of films on offer – including favourites such as Grease and Dirty Dancing and some of 2020’s finest like Joker, JoJo Rabbit and The Invisible Man – there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Guests can expect everything from gourmet burgers and bruschetta, to crepes and caramel ice-cream, along with a dedicated bar, serving great beers and bespoke cocktails. Gates will open up to 3 hours before each film starts, to ensure visitors have plenty of time to enjoy!
Ticket holders will be offered a 100% money-back guarantee should anything mean that the events cannot go ahead.
Event is scheduled for 12th-15th August, location TBC.
