COLLABORATION BRINGS OUTDOOR MOVIE MAGIC TO COLCHESTER’S CASTLE PARK!

A collaboration between Colchester Events & Pop-Up Pictures has resulted in a new outdoor four-day, festival of
food and film coming to Castle Park this summer.

The Colchester Open Air Film & Street Food Festival which takes place Thursday 5th to Sunday 8 th August, is a
brand-new concept showcasing 12 classic outdoor movies and a pop-up street food market with flavours from
around the world.

Movies will be screened both day and night on the large LED Screen in the Park – visitors can book their film
favourites from Greatest Showman, Grease and The Rocky Horror Picture Show to Back to the Future and Bohemian
Rhapsody.

There are three daytime sessions which feature 2-4-1 deals – a ‘Kids Club’ on Friday with Lion King and Jungle Book, a
‘Brunch Club’ on Saturday with Mamma Mia and Dirty Dancing and on Sunday afternoon the ‘Sunday Brunch’ with
family favourites The Goonies and Never-Ending Story.

Eating Street, a pop-up street food market with a proud support local ethos, will be open throughout the festival,
for both cinema goers and visitors to the town, with an array of flavours from local street food traders.

The savoury street food line-up includes The Flag Burger, Cowabunga Pizza, Mauritian Nutrition, Sweet P’s BBQ &
soul food, Suffolk Spice Fusion, with one more to be announced, and for the sweeter tooth Obscene Waffles and
Ravenous Fudge.
Cinema goers who prefer to bring their own picnic are welcome to do so by opting for a Picnic Pass ticket when
booking their films. Alcohol cannot be brought into Castle Park – a licensed bar will be available inside the cinema
arena.

Cllr Theresa Higgins, Portfolio Holder for Commercial Services said: “For many years movie lovers have enjoyed
unique outdoor cinema events at Castle Park courtesy of Colchester Events screening movies during Wimbledon
weeks and Pop-Up Pictures in August. It’s great to see the two organisations joining forces to present this exciting
new festival which I’m sure will appeal to so many of us looking to spend quality time safely and locally with family
and friends.”

Early Bird Ticket Prices are on sale now from £9.50 per adult including one free child place offered per paying adult
for the PG, PG12 & U rated titles. To book visit the Facebook event page – Colchester Open Air & Street Food
