Watford Borough Council’s free outdoor cinema returns

Watford Borough Council’s free outdoor cinema the Big Screen returns to The Parade by the pond from Monday 29 July to Friday 9 August.

There is a terrific line-up of movies designed to appeal to all age groups from sing-along Mary Poppins: Returns and family favourite, the Incredibles 2 to Avengers: Endgame and Bohemian Rhapsody. Grab some popcorn and borrow a deckchair (no charge) while you watch the films, you can also bring your own chair to the event.

Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said: “The Big Screen has always been a huge success. I have received a lot of positive feedback about this hugely popular event. It brings droves of visitors into our town centre, and this year we’ve broadened our film programme, so we hope it will appeal to even more people.”

The Big Screen is part of a wider programme of Big Events staged by Watford Borough Council and its partners in the town centre and Cassiobury Park throughout the year. Other events planned for this year include: Own the Stage (up until September), British Firefighter Challenge (Saturday 27 to Sunday 28 July), Watford Short Film Festival (Saturday 27 to Sunday 28 July), Big Jiveswing (Sunday 28 July), Big Beach (Friday 16 to Friday 30 August), Big Sports (Saturday 7 September), Colourscape (Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 September) and Cassiobury Fireworks (Saturday 2 November).
