This summer, St Barnabas Hospice are bringing the magic of the movies to Lincoln with their brand new outdoor cinema
On Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd June, St Barnabas Hospice are hosting their brand new Barnabas Big Screen event at Daisy Made Farm, bringing Lincoln a summer film festival to remember.
Thanks to Big Event Screens, there will be an outdoor screen showing three different films over the two days. On the Friday night will be a popular chick flick film beginning at 8pm, with gates opening at 6.30pm. Saturday afternoon will show a family friendly film at 2pm, with gates opening at 12pm. A movie classic will be shown on the Saturday evening at 8pm, with gates opening at 6.30pm.
The films are yet to be decided, but that’s because St Barnabas wants to put the choice in the hands of the public! Head to their Facebook page on Monday 19th March where the vote for the chick flick film will be open for a week. The vote for the family film will run for a week from Tuesday 20th March, and the vote for the classic film will run for a week from Wednesday 21st March. You could also win a pair of tickets by voting!
Laura Stones, Event Fundraiser for St Barnabas, said:
“We would like to thank Paperwork UK, who is the headline sponsor for this brand new event and will be providing our event tickets.
Alex Colman, Sales Director at Paperwork UK, said:
“Paperwork UK specialises in ticket and event media for theatres, stadiums and international events and we wanted to show our support for such an exciting occasion happening on our doorstep.
“Being a Lincolnshire business, we’re familiar with so many people who have been touched by the wonderful work carried out by St Barnabas, and we’re very proud to be a sponsor.”
Donations are crucial to the success of this event. There are no set prices for the tickets – St Barnabas simply asks that you make a donation of what you feel it is worth.
£10 would fund two three-course meals for a patient at our Inpatient Unit, £20 would allow St Barnabas to care for a patient in their own home for an hour, and £34 would fund a physiotherapy session for a St Barnabas patient.
Amelia Mochan, Event Fundraiser at St Barnabas Hospice, said:
“We are excited to announce the launch of our first ever Barnabas Big Screen this summer. It’s a great way for the local community to come together and have fun whilst raising money for charity.
“A lot of our events are quite physical, so we wanted to bring a large scale event to Lincolnshire that was something completely different.”
As well as being able to relax in the sunshine and watch a movie, people will also be able to buy hot and cold food, including classic cinema snacks and drinks. There will also be plenty of ice cream!
The Barnabas Big Screen is open to everyone, but children will be unable to register for tickets unless accompanied by a paying adult. Dogs are allowed, but must be kept on a lead at all times. If a dog causes disruption or mischief, St Barnabas reserves the right to ask them to leave the venue with their owner.
Tickets are set to go on sale during the week commencing 26th March at www.stbarnabashospice.co.uk/events. For more information contact the Events team on 01522 540 300 or email email@example.com
