Friday 19 August 2022 | Gates Open: 6.00pm | Movie Starts: 7.30pm

This open-air big-screen movie night is being brought to the world-class Cheshire venue thanks to popular demand, and to celebrate the life of star Dame Olivia Newton-John, who sadly passed away earlier this week.

The block-buster movie, which needs little by way of introduction, is one of the most successful musical romantic comedies of all time. It’s a timeless family-pleaser and has a cheerfully corny clean-cut approach. It follows the journey of wholesome exchange student Sandy Olsson meeting leather-clad ‘greaser’ Danny Zuko, before falling in love and ultimately donning black shiny spandex leggings an performing the classic ‘You’re the one that I want’ … The film also stars John Travolta, Stockard Channing, Eve Arden and Frankie Avalon.

To keep the good-feel party vibe flowing, DJ Mylez will be playing the decks from 6pm, before and after the movie, right up until midnight on both Friday and Saturday nights.

Tickets, which are anticipated to sell out quickly, are priced at £16.50 per adult, £7.70 child (12 and under), with great-value food and drink packages available from just £19.50 per adult. 

Gates open at 6pm, allowing everyone to grab refreshments, take their places and get settled in the huge Bolesworth arena, prior to the start of the film at 7.30pm.
