Picnic Cinema comes to Gisburn Forest

First published in News by , Reporter

PICNIC Cinema is coming to Gisburn Forest for a night of film, camping and festival antics.

Picnic Cinema is an outdoor cinema like no other, where forests, castles and courtyards across England are transformed into unique cinema locations.

It is part adventure, part fancy dress party plus the chance to camp out overnight, bringing a festival vibe to the nights proceedings.

On Wednesday, August 13, cinema-goers and campers are being encouraged to don full zombie attire for a screening of 28 Days Later, the post-apocalyptic horror film directed by Danny Boyle.

Adrian Lochhead, director of Eden Arts and Picnic Cinema, said: “I think the best part is that it’s not just about watching a film in a forest; we have way more fun than that. The feedback we get is fantastic, with people tweeting us that they had the best night of their year. The whole project is simply designed to give people a good time. I think everyone realises it's an opportunity to do something really out of the ordinary.”

All profits to Picnic Cinema support arts charity Eden Art’s rural touring cinema programme, Remote, which brings cinema equipment free to rural villages in Eden, Cumbria.

Tickets costing from £18 to £28, which includes music and entertainment, are available from picniccinema.co.uk and for more details about the Gisburn Forest venue, visit http://picniccinema.co.uk/info-gisburn/
