Open air cinema at Bamburgh Castle

Screenings under the stars return this August

Rated as one of the most spectacular outdoor cinema locations in the country, screenings under the stars return to iconic Bamburgh Castle in August.

England’s finest coastal fortress Bamburgh Castle will be showing four al fresco screenings from its Inner Ward courtyard lawn surrounded by the castle’s battlements as the sun sets over the sea behind. This year’s screenings will roll from Friday August 12 with the heart-warming story of Billy Elliot. On Saturday August 13 don’t miss cult classic the Rocky Horror Picture Show – dressing up optional!

On Saturday August 27 there’s feel-good jukebox rom com with Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again while on Sunday August 28 don your shades for legendary American musical comedy The Blues Brothers.

Bamburgh Castle events manager Karen Larkin said: “Our outdoor cinema nights are super popular and we can’t wait for this year’s screenings to roll.

“As well as watching a classic film in a location like no other, you’ll also experience the magic of being in Bamburgh Castle grounds outside normal visiting times and unforgettable views as the sun sets and dusk falls and the stars come out. It’s not surprising that we’ve been described as one of the most beautiful outdoor cinemas in the country! Even if the weather is less then clement the atmosphere of the castle and its 3000 years of history makes it the ultimate outdoor cinema venue and definitely one not an occasion to miss.

“You’re welcome to get dressed up, sing along, dance or just settle back, pop open a bottle of fizz and enjoy the moment with your family and friends.”

Screenings will begin shortly after sunset. Cinema goers are welcome to bring picnics but please note that glassware is not allowed within the castle and grounds. Refreshments will also be available to purchase on the night.
