WESSEX Cancer Trust’s drive-in cinema is heading to Sandown Airport this summer.

Tickets go live at 12pm tomorrow (Wednesday) for the event, which will feature eight blockbusters screened over two days, June 5 and 6, to raise money for the charity.

The films to be screened on the Saturday are Jurassic Park, The Greatest Showman, Dirty Dancing and Bridesmaids while, on Sunday, The Lion King (2019), Mamma Mia, Grease and The Hangover will be shown on a giant LED screen, with the soundtrack played through each car radio.

Regional fundraiser Laura Joyce said: “Our Christmas drive-in was such a huge success, so we were really keen to run it again. We had some amazing feedback and so many requests for summer screenings, so we delivered.

“Tickets for the Christmas event were snapped up so quickly, and we’re expecting the same this time around, so make sure you get booked in early.

“2021 is an extra special year for Wessex as it's our 40th birthday so please come along, show your support and help us celebrate in style.”

The event will take place with Covid-19 social distancing rules in place.

The charity has secured the support of headline sponsors Hose Rhodes Dickson, Novum Law, Fidelity International, ICRTouch and Find Us On Web to host the event.
