Dudley's Himley Hall will host a drive-in cinema this summer.

The town council plans to show family films at the venue over the weekend of Saturday 8 & Sunday 9 August, and has set up an online poll to help choose which fillms to screen. People can vote for their favourite on the council’s Facebook page HERE

Tickets will go on sale soon at £20 per car and will only be available online from Eventbrite via the Himley Hall & Park website.

Numbers will be limited, to ensure that the event can take place under the latest government health & safety guidance on social distancing.

Visitors are encouraged to take along their own food and refreshments, but no alcohol will be permitted.

Cars will be kept apart in keeping with the two-metre social-distancing regulations, and people will be able to stream the audio from the film via their car radios.

Toilet provision will also take into consideration government guidelines, with health & safety measures in place.

Councillor Ian Kettle, cabinet member responsible for halls, said: "With the restrictions that the Covid-19 lockdown has brought, this will be a chance for families to enjoy some quality time out of their homes in a safe environment.

“We really do want to hear people’s thoughts on which films they would like to see screened, and I would encourage them to visit our Facebook page and tell us their thoughts via our online poll.”
