Bamburgh Castle Outdoor Cinema Nights Frequently Asked Questions

Film Certification

Please adhere to the age restrictions of the film ratings. The film certification always applies so please ensure the film is suitable and of the correct certification. We reserve the rights to refuse entry to anyone under the age of 16 who is unaccompanied or anyone under the certification age.

Can I buy a ticket on the door? 

Yes – if there are any left. Tickets have had to be restricted due to social distancing so there are fewer up for grabs. Once they are gone they are gone. 

How will social distancing be managed?

Ticket sales are capped to ensure we can allow for safe social distancing with restricted visitor numbers. This means the maximum number of tickets you can purchase for each party is four. Stewards will be on hand to help everyone maintain safe social distancing. A one way system is in place from the car park to the Inner Ward lawn. Please keep right at all times on the walkway.

Will I have to wear a face covering?
