Free socially distanced outdoor cinema in Droitwich this weekend

FILM fans who have been missing the cinema experience can go to a free outdoor screening of The Lion King between 8pm and 10pm tomorrow at Droitwich’s King George Playing Fields.

Viewers are urged to take along a chair or blanket, a picnic or some snacks and drinks.

Markers on the ground and stewards will ensure everyone has a safe place to sit. Visitors are encouraged to dine out in one of the many restaurants, pubs and cafes in Droitwich or use local businesses to make up their own picnic.

Parking is free in all Wychavon car parks after 6pm.

The event is being held in conjunction with the Norbury Theatre.

This film screening, along with similar showings in Evesham and Pershore, is part of Wychavon’s continuing efforts to support the local economy as it recovers from the impact of coronavirus and to provide opportunities for people to #EnjoyWychavonSafely.

Coun Richard Morris, Executive Board Member for Economic Growth and Tourism on Wychavon District Council, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for people to enjoy a night out watching some classic films in the surroundings of our beautiful, award-winning parks and open spaces.

“The weather forecast is good and we’re all looking forward to a great evening.

“It is also a chance to promote the wonderful arts, cinema and live performance venues we have available in Wychavon and we hope people will go out and support them when they restart their programmes.”
