In the event this event cannot take place, you can book in confidence that you are covered by a ticket transfer to a new drive in date.

Refunds – refunds are not permitted. In case our event cannot go ahead (due to reasons beyond our control) your ticket will be transferred to a future drive in movie.

How do I hear the audio being played from the event or screen?

Audio for all events and drive-in movies will be played via an audio connection box. This can be connected in your car via the AUX port on your car radio. Do not worry if you do not have one of these, we will provide you with a SMART speaker to pop in your car for optimum audio.

Will I be able to see the screen?

Yes of course, we stagger vehicles so everyone has a clear view of the stage or big screen (passengers in the back of the vehicle may have restricted viewing due to front passenger seats)

Will I be able to EXIT if there is an emergency?

We park all vehicles with plenty of space to exit if they are required to. Once you exit, you can not return to the same showing.

Are toilets available?

Yes on site toilets are available, including disabled toilets and we will make sure they are cleaned regularly and hand wash is always available

Are these events socially distance events and safe to attend?

Yes we believe so, by staying in your own personal car and only leave when you absolutely need to, eg to attend the toilet, we believe that you are in a socially distant environment
