The Lion King comes to Kearsney Abbey

 Open air cinema event - Friday, 26 May 2017

An open air cinema event for the whole family is coming to Kearsney Abbey on Friday 26 May from 7.30pm – bring a picnic, and join us under the stars for a screening of Disney’s The Lion King, (certificate U).

Gates will open at 7.30pm and the film will start around 8.45pm.  The film, (which is 86 minutes long), will be shown on the south side of the lake, on the site of the old outdoor theatre.  

The event is ticket only, which can be booked through See Tickets for £5.50 each, (plus a transaction fee of £1.50 for an e-ticket, or £2.50 for Standard Delivery). All under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. 

Come rain or shine, don’t forget to dress appropriately for the weather, and please bring torches to help you find your way out of the park after the film, as it will be dark! You’re welcome to bring a picnic, but barbeques and fires are not allowed.

The only parking available at Kearsney Abbey will be for blue badge holders, in the car park by the café. Please consider using public transport, or walking to the park.

There will be a Park and Ride service from Dover Rugby Club in Crabble Athletic Ground. DDC will also refund the cost of standard class train tickets, dated 26th May, from anywhere in East Kent to Kearsney railway station for those coming to see the film.  For more details, please see the Kearsney Parks website.

The event is being organised by the Heritage Lottery and Big Lottery funded Kearsney Parks project at Dover District Council, and delivered by Luna Cinema.
