Q: Will there be food available?

A:  It’s something that we’re working on. We will have Freakshow Treats on site to provide such things as popcorn but if you’re looking for other food options there are a lot of places in the area such as the Broadfield pub on the other side of the road, Pizza Hut and a Tesco next door.

Q: 12 hours is a long day to watch films, can I leave and come back in?

Q: Can I pay on the door?

A:  We would always encourage you to buy upfront but if you’d prefer to pay on the door, that’s not a problem. A pass for the event is £20 plus a £2 donation to charity


Q: Can I pay for individual films?

A:  Unfortunately not, we’ve thought long and hard about this but it will be really difficult for us to adminisiter on the day. We’ve intentionally kept prices low so even if you see a handful of films, it’s still good value for money.


Q: I’d like to help out, is this possible?

A:  We’d love it if you helped out on the day, if you’re interested please email us at
