A Huge Film And Street Food Festival Is Coming To Heaton Park This Summer

Four days of food, film and more!

Just when you thought the open-air trend had officially peaked, Adventure Cinema has announced a brand new concept for this summer – combining food and film for a fantastic four-day festival.

Taking place at North Manchester’s Heaton Park, Film & Food Fest 2021 will provide the perfect setting to soak up the Manchester sun, with plenty of room for sunbathing, stuffing your face with tasty food and lounging with a food coma in front of a giant cinema screen with your nearest and dearest.

Showcasing an incredible roster of family-friendly and new movies over the four days, guests will get to enjoy screenings such as The Greatest Showman, The Lion King, and Onward, with hits for the adults in the schedule, too, including JoJo Rabbit, Joker and Dirty Dancing.

In addition to Hollywood blockbusters, Adventure Cinema will also open up the stage for live comedy acts, and screen special showcases of short films created by some of the UK’s finest independent filmmakers. £2 from every ticket sold for the short film nights will also be used to support local film organisations within each city.

Food-wise, guests can expect an array of vendors for the duration of the festival, with everything from gourmet burgers and bruschetta, to crepes and caramel ice-cream, along with a dedicated bar, serving beers and bespoke cocktails. Each ticket allows for three hours of exploring the festival ahead of each screening, too, so you’ll have plenty of time to take advantage of the summery space.

The Film & Food Fest is set to roll into Manchester from 23rd September until the 26th, and tickets are on sale now.
