I don’t know about anyone else, but I was pretty shocked (in a good way) to hear that we have an outdoor Movie Theatre and also Gather Round outdoor concerts at some of our UK Holiday Parks this summer. I have personally never been to an outdoor Movie Theatre before but have always loved the idea of it, so I’ll definitely planning my family holiday for a few weeks’ time. We trialled the concept of an outdoor movie theatre on one or two Parks last year and it was hugely popular, so, back by popular demand, it is now at lots of our Parks this season.
If you haven’t yet booked a holiday but want to get away and you fancy a unique and entertaining experience while you’re here, then check out the dates and locations below.
MOVIE THEATRE UNDER THE STARS
Classic movies will be showing around the UK on specific dates – under the stars! It’s got a real ‘festival’ feel to it, so bring your picnic blankets and get ready to watch your favourite films on our giant outdoor screen. For more information on what’s showing, be sure to give the Holiday Park a call and make sure you book quickly to avoid disappointment. Once booked, just pray for sunshine The movie will still be shown if the weather is wet, but it won’t be such a unique experience if it’s moved indoors. It’s all about the ‘Under the stars’ part you see. (The pic above is just representative, not a real photo on our parks as the big events haven’t happened yet).
GATHER ROUND CONCERTS
Park Resorts is making full use of the great outdoors with these Gather Round Concerts! There really is something quite rare and special about sitting outside in the warm evening sunshine listening to a concert from a live band or local group. A whole series of summer concerts are planned, and again, don’t worry if it rains – all of our concerts are designed so they can easily be performed inside too!
