Four days of food, film, and more!
Just when you thought the open-air trend had officially peaked, Adventure Cinema announced a brand new concept for this summer – combining food and film for a fantastic four-day festival. Film & Food Fest 2021 provides the perfect setting to soak up the summer vibes, with plenty of room for sunbathing, stuffing your face with tasty food, and lounging with a food coma in front of a giant cinema screen with your nearest and dearest. They’ve already blessed Finsbury Park with a visit, but they’re back in August for a stay in south London!
The Film & Food Fest has been touring fourteen UK cities this summer, and from August 26 – 29, you’ll find them setting up shop in Beckenham Place Park. Showcasing an incredible roster of family-friendly and new films over the four day festival, guests will get to enjoy screenings such as The Greatest Showman, JoJo Rabbit, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and a Grease sing-a-long. If you’re outside the capital, they might be visiting you beforehand, as the festival has booked in dates in Bristol (August 5-8), Liverpool (August 12-15), and Bournemouth (August 19-22) ahead of the next London stop.
In addition to some stellar Hollywood blockbusters, Adventure Cinema will also open up the stage for live comedy acts, and screen special showcases of short films created by local independent filmmakers, to show off their work to the wider public. £2 from every ticket sold for the short film nights will also be used to support local film organisations within each city.
Food-wise, guests can expect an array of vendors for the duration of the festival, with everything from gourmet burgers and bruschetta, to crepes and caramel ice-cream, along with a dedicated bar, serving beers and bespoke cocktails. Each ticket allows for three hours of exploring the festival ahead of each screening, too, so you’ll have plenty of time to take advantage of the summery space. Find your tickets here.
