Watch your favourite movies in an idyllic summer setting

For the first time ever, the Rippon Lea Mansion and Gardens will host an outdoor cinema this summer. For the first two weeks of February, you can enjoy the idyllic setting of the gardens at twilight with a much-loved classic or catch up on a recent release. The movies featured include classics such as The Great Gatsby, The Lion King, Dirty Dancing, and Top Gun, with more recent releases including Battle of the Sexes, Hidden Figures and Atomic Blonde. There will also be a special Valentine's Day showing of Love Actually, for all the romantics out there. The full list of movies showing is available here.

Each movie starts at 8.30pm, with the gates opening at 6pm, so you'll have plenty of time to find the your perfect spot and grab some supplies from the foodtrucks before the movie starts,and to explore the gardens too.

Feel free to bring picnic blankets, bean bags or low-back chairs to sit on, or alternatively you can purchase a VIP upgrade to have your own reserved seat provided along with waiter service and a complimentary drink. The event will be licensed with a range of beer and wine provided by the Barefoot Bar, along with popcorn and other cinema style snacks and more substantial fare provided by the food trucks.

Make sure you buy your tickets in advance as tickets will sell out!
