After the disappointment of having to cancel last year, we are happy to announce that the Garden Movie is back. For those of you who are new to the gardens, one Saturday evening each summer we put up a big screen in the garden and play a classic movie. We supply transmitters, you bring your headphones to plug into them, and you hear the soundtrack without the sound disturbing other residents. In past years we’ve had wonderful evenings watching Some Like It Hot, Dial M For Murder, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, this year it’s the Monty Python classic Life of Brian. Regarded by many as the funniest British movie of all time, relive all the classic scenes and introduce a new generation to the irreverent humour of the Pythons.

It’s on Saturday 12th August, and starts when darkness falls, which should be around 8.30pm. To cover costs we charge £10 per ticket, and you can buy them on this web page:

Feel free to bring your friends, we need about 90 people to break even. If it’s a nice evening, you can picnic in the gardens beforehand, and if the weather turns against us we can cancel on the Saturday morning and either reschedule or refund people’s tickets. If the past is any guide, get in early for your tickets as they sell pretty quickly !
