Those that like a little tree time are sure to enjoy the outdoor cinema and camping adventure that our friends, Picnic Cinema, are bringing to forests this summer.
Picnic Cinema does outdoor cinema like no other, where forests, castles and courtyards are transformed into unique cinema locations.
Audiences can be scared witless by The Blair Witch Project, don full zombie attire with 28 Days Later, worship ‘The Dude’ in The Big Lebowski, sing about the bright side with Monty Python’s The Life of Brian, see Robin Hood Men in Tights in, where else but Sherwood Forest, fight it out with The Hunger Games and have an alien encounter with Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
Hamsterley, Dalby, Sherwood Pines, High Lodge Thetford, Wyre, West Woods, Gisburn, and Cannock Chase Forest provide sometimes eerie, sometimes cheery and always atmospheric backdrops to an eclectic mix of horror, sci-fi and classic films.
Picnic Cinema is part performance, part fancy dress party plus the chance to camp out overnight in hidden forest locations, creating a boutique festival atmosphere. Now in its third year, the programme has grown exponentially since its inception in the north of England, and has won high acclaim from its audiences.
