COVID Measures: as restrictions have now been lifted in England, we won’t be asking you to wear facemasks to the event, or to socially distance from each other. However, if you feel more comfortable wearing a mask at any point, this is fine with us, and we’ll also make sure there’s enough room at the event for you to sit a reasonable distance from neighbouring groups. All premium deckchair seats will still be distanced by group. If you are shielding, or experiencing symptoms associated with Covid-19, please do not attend the event. We will be happy to offer you a voucher for a future screening, or for you to give your ticket to someone else.
Premium Deckchair Seat tickets: if you have booked a premium deckchair seat, this will be reserved at the front of the screening area right up until the start of the film. You will be given a blanket to use for the evening. Please leave the blanket on your seat at the end of the show.
BYO Seat tickets: please remember to bring your own picnic blanket, low-backed camping chair or deckchair to the screening. Picnic blankets will be located on the ground at the front, with deckchairs and camping chairs behind, so that everyone gets a good view. Anyone arriving with high-backed camping chairs will be asked to sit to the sides or rear.
Food and Drink: An event bar will be open courtesy of Ori-Gin Gin Bar, selling gins, beers, ciders, prosecco, wine and soft drinks. Amazing hot food including award-winning burgers and sausages will be available from Dorset Catering Services and ice creams will be on sale from the wonderful Purbeck Ice Cream. You are also welcome to bring picnics to the event. Please don’t bring any glass containers or bottles onto the event site.
What to Wear: Please wear warm clothes, the more layers the better, and bring a blanket or similar to keep you toasty. Closed toe footwear is also sensible.
About the Venue: The screening will take place on a grassed area at the venue. For safety reasons, there will be no access to the Blue Pool itself on the night of the event, but you are welcome to make a day of your trip and visit the whole attraction in the daytime (admission charges apply).
