Blockbuster outdoor cinema nights return to Bamburgh Castle

Outdoor cinema is returning to iconic Bamburgh Castle this August. 

Following last year’s sell-out open air cinema nights, England’s finest coastal fortress Bamburgh Castle has announced it will be showing four exclusive al fresco screenings from its Inner Ward courtyard lawn. 

Unblinking first world war film 1917 (15) will be screened on Friday August 14 and Friday August 21, while fun will definitely be the word for cinema goers who are welcome to dress up and sing along to film classic Grease (PG) on Saturday August 15 and Saturday August 22. 

Bamburgh Castle events manager Karen Larkin said: “You could not wish for a more magical and enchanting backdrop than Bamburgh Castle to watch a film beneath the stars. 

“It was a little bit touch and go as to whether or not any events could go ahead, so it’s lovely to be able to put on amazing events like these for people to enjoy after such a rollercoaster time. 

“The feedback we received after last year’s events was phenomenal – people still talk about them now, so we are all looking forward to more blockbuster cinema nights at Bamburgh Castle once again.”

Social distancing will be implemented at every cinema night with strictly limited ticket numbers, therefore early booking is essential. 

Tickets priced at £19 per person are available here.

Screenings will begin shortly after sunset. Cinema goers are welcome to bring picnics but glassware is not allowed within the castle and grounds. 

Refreshments will be available to purchase on the night from a fish and chip van, hot drinks from The Guru Coffee Company and a mobile bar will be on site.
