Picnic on the lawn with friends on Friday 2nd September 2016 at Avoncroft’s open-air cinema showing of The Martian, in partnership with Artrix arts centre. Join us in our beautiful grounds, sit back, relax and enjoy the show. Watch under the stars as Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) fights for survival on the hostile planet. With only meagre supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive! Make sure you bring along your picnic blankets and chairs and pack your favourite nibbles – a stellar opportunity to watch this award-winning film. You also have a chance to gaze at the real stars with Bromsgrove Astronomical Society who are bringing along their telescopes, listen to live music and purchase the odd tipple from the bar. Doors open at 7.45pm and the film starts at 8.30pm. Film certificate 12. Tickets are £7 each for adults and £6 each for concessions. Tickets are available from Artrix box office on 01527 577330, www.artrix.co.uk or on the gate on the night. Find more information about this and all our Forthcoming events here.
