Tickets went on sale last Friday (12th October) and are set to be incredibly sought-after. Th event comprises of six film screenings of Christmas classics, including ‘Home Alone’ and the hilarious ‘Elf’.
WightFibre are proud to be the headline sponsor hosting this event at Robin Hill which will take place on the 1st and 2nd of December.
The films to be screened on the Saturday are set to be:
- Home Alone
- Love Actually
- The Polar Express
- Santa Claus The Movie
- The Holiday
All money raised from the event will go towards the charity’s £100,000 appeal to create a new cancer well-being centre on the Island. To date, around £62,000 has been raised, including more than £30,000 from the Inflatable Rainbow Run held back in August.
Community Engagement Manager Lorraine White said:
“Following the incredible success of the Rainbow Run, we knew our next fundraiser had to be something special, so when we came up with the idea of hosting a drive-in Christmas cinema featuring everyone’s favourite festive films,
we were really excited. We are especially thankful for the support of WightFibre, who have helped make our dream a reality.”
Tickets are available online here and if you’re interested in advertising your business or Christmas event on the big screen, please contact email Lorraine White (all proceeds will go to the appeal).
