The popular Summer Nights Outdoor Film Festival is set to return to Derbyshire on July 24th, and will run through to the end of August. The festival is organised by QUAD, Derby’s centre for art and film, and will host screenings of classic and contemporary films in a number of beautiful heritage locations across the Midlands. Venues this year include Kedleston Hall, Calke Abbey, and Hardwick Hall, all of which are located in the beautiful surroundings of rural Derbyshire, and are easily driveable from the Easirent site at East Midlands Airport.
The concept of watching your favourite films in the great outdoors is a refreshingly novel experience, and it’s a decidedly relaxed affair, with attendees encouraged to bring their own food and furniture should they so desire. There’s something for everyone, too – the programme includes everything from timeless cult classics such as The Blues Brothers to modern-day phenomena such as the Christopher Nolan-directed Interstellar.
Now in its 4th year, the Summer Nights festival is gaining popularity continuously, with over 10,000 people in attendance across the 2014 events, and that number only looks set to increase going forward.
Tickets are available to buy online up to 2 days prior to the screening or from QUAD Box Office up to 24 hours before the event, and pre-booked tickets must be collected from QUAD Box Office 48 hours before the screening. For more information, refer to the official festival website, where a full programme of events is available.
