The screenings take place in the open, on the plaza by the main entrance. A limited supply of deckchair seating is available on a first-come first-served basis and we will also have standard seating available. Space is limited so we cannot allow any other furniture into the 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 Ashmolean will provide full bar and catering facilities.
