This summer we’re taking the Duke of Yorks and Dukes at Komedia outdoors to the grand setting of the gardens of Preston Manor in Preston Park. Arrive early to enjoy the last of the evening sun with something special from our pop-up bar. Doors open at 7.30, films start at dusk.
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 licensed event, so we cannot accept any alcohol brought in from outside, however a cash only bar will be open for beer and wine sales. You are welcome to bring a picnic.
