People sitting on the grass at Daventry Cinema Day

People are invited to enjoy family favourites on the big screen at Daventry Country Park this summer as the popular annual Cinema Day returns.

The event, which is now in its tenth year, takes place on Saturday 31 July when people can take a blanket or chairs to enjoy their choice of either Frozen 2 or the classic animated comedy Shrek.

Families are welcome to bring picnics with them and refreshments will also be available from the Park’s Reservoir Café, along with ice cream and desserts available from Cream Works and Vanbliss coffee trailer.

Entry is free, though people must book tickets in advance as the venue’s capacity will be carefully managed to allow everyone to socially distance and remain safe.

Tickets are available on Eventbrite.

Gates open at 10am, with Frozen 2 being shown at 11am. Visitors are then asked to leave promptly to allow the team to clean the area and prepare for Shrek, which is being screened at 2pm. 

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).

Cllr Adam Brown, Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Housing and Deputy Leader at West Northamptonshire Council, which is organising the event, said: “The Family Cinema Day has become one of the park’s most popular events, so it’s fantastic to see it return this summer.

“We’ve got two great family films to suit people of all ages, and visitors can be assured that there is plenty of space in the venue to allow people to spread out and feel safe, so please join us for what promises to be another fantastic free event at the wonderful Daventry Country Park.”
