We're bringing an open air cinema experience to Colchester

Feb 09, 2018

The classic, multiple award-winning Dirty Dancing will be the feature film when EACH hosts an open air cinema experience at Colchester’s Ardleigh Showground.

The event on Saturday, 5 May promises to be full of fun, with a live band to entertain until the film begins. In addition there will be food and drinks, or guests are welcome to take a picnic.

Lesa Barker says: “We’re really excited to be screening such a popular film as Dirty Dancing and have a fantastic night full of music, laughter and entertainment in store, so please do join us!

“All money raised will help us continue providing care for children with life-threatening conditions across the region and support for their families.”

Dirty Dancing is a film that really needs no introduction, with the 1987 romantic dance drama as popular now as it was when released just over 30 years ago.

Gates will open at 6.30pm. The film, one hour and 40 minutes, will start at sundown around 8pm. There will be no reserved seating, so guests are advised to take blankets and collapsible chairs for full comfort. The venue has free parking. Dogs and alcohol are permitted on site.

Tickets are £12. To book and for more information about both the event and the charity’s care services, visit www.each.org.uk.
