Wanna boogie like John Travolta and Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction? Discover the disco vibe of South California in the ’70s?

Picnic Cinema, the North’s number one outdoor cinema, is back this summer with a selection of cult classic films screened in extraordinary locations. Set in the grounds of castles, courtyards and forests, Picnic Cinema create memorable, immersive parties that take inspiration from some of your favourite movies.

The outdoor cinema kicks off with four sold out screenings of the beloved comedy Withnail & I at Sleddale Hall (aka Crow Crag), before taking in the spectacular surroundings of Appleby Castle and Muncaster Castle with a selection of films featuring cooler-than-life characters, epic discos and terrifying folk-horror.

Think groovy music on the sound-system, fun and games before the films and camping in some of the North’s most beautiful locations afterwards.

Here are our picks
