One of the best things in life has to be enjoying a fabulous film framed by a backdrop of stars, surrounded by the horticultural heaven of the Holburne’s grounds. This August The Little goes free range, as we bring four terrific films to a huge screen set under the summer firmament.
The screenings take place in the open, cardboard bumbox seating will be for sale but feel free to bring along cushions, blankets or small picnic chairs – however these must be placed towards the rear of the grass area.
This is a fully licensed and catered event so we cannot accept any alcohol, food and drink to be brought in from outside. The Holburne will provide full bar and catering facilities.
