Come along for the ride of your life! A cinema experience with a difference: Watch the classic film ‘Cars’ in your very own customised car. Let their imaginations run wild as your children can decorate their own cardboard box racing car. We will provide the cars, steering wheels, and some decorating materials. Please bring extra stickers and pens to make your car extra special and a cushion for comfort.
This is a family friendly event, and a break out room will be available. Please note that all children need to be supervised at all times, including in the breakout room.
There will be lots of lovely refreshments to buy and really affordable prices so please don’t bring any of your own drinks or sweets. Unless you fancy an alcoholic drink as this is a ‘bring your own booze’ event.
