Al fresco films

There’s nothing like cuddling up with the kids under a woolly blanket, snacks within arms reach and your favorite film in the DVD player. Now imagine how fun it would be if you could do the very same thing, but on a glorious summer evening under the sky. The good news is, now you can!

The leading name in summer cinema, Pop Up Screens returns with a fun programme aimed at anyone with a love of classic films and the outdoors. Heading to nine of London’s most idyllic settings, including Bishop Park in Fulham, the Greenwich Peninsula and Eltham’s Tudor Barn, Pop Up Screens bring a wide selection of films for 2015. Bring your blankets, your cushions and your favourite snuggly blankets, tuck into burgers and treat the family to an evening out (literally!).

With a series of gorgeous settings across London, look forward to trees strewn with fairy lights, an exciting atmosphere and very happy kids.
