A new outdoor event featuring blockbusters and live bands is coming to a country park this summer.

Five films will be shown across the weekend, which are Bohemian Rhapsody, The Lion King, Mamma Mia!, The Goonies and the final one is to be confirmed.

Each film will be part of a mini festival lasting four or five hours with a local live band performing before.

You can also bring you own food and drink, including alcohol, with on-site vendors selling everything from pizzas to burgers.
