A range of delicious food is available to buy on site and there is a fully-licensed bar and coffee point, including 'The House of Peroni' bar located within the Summer Screen Prints exhibition in the East Wing.
You are welcome to bring your own picnic, but we regret that no glass bottles and jars, crockery or sharp knives are allowed into the courtyard. Bag searches may be made at entrance and unsuitable items confiscated. Cans are allowed but are limited to two per person.
Entrance to double bill programmes is restricted to the film of highest certification.
Where a film is uncertificated, entry is to over 18’s only.
Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.
The classification of each film is clearly marked and we are obliged to refuse admittance to anyone who appears to be under the age stated. Due to the nature of the event children under the age of 4 including babies are not permitted to attend.
The screenings are open air. The audience area is not covered. The screenings will go ahead whatever the weather — come rain or come shine. Please do come prepared as no wet weather provisions will be provided.
Summer Screen Prints
The film poster exhibition with Print Club London is back. Your chance to buy limited-edition screen prints inspired by this seasons film programme for £50 each. Free and open daily and every night before the film begins.
