Best Bits

Relive the magic of the great American drive in movie theatre - a contact-free way to experience film, outdoor theatre and live performances. Bringing back the nostalgia of the 1950s and the golden age of Hollywood, The Drive In brings you the iconic drive in experience, with live actors, classic cinema refreshments, and great entertainment - all from the safety and comfort of your automobile.

Now the kids can enjoy Horrible Histories from the safety of a Drive in Experience! 

We all want to meet people from history. The trouble is everyone is dead! So Horrible Histories is bringing them live to the stage!

Can you beat battling Boudicca? Would you be shaken or stirred by Richard III? Will you lose your heart or head to horrible Henry VIII? Can Parliament survive gunpowder Guy? Would you stand and deliver to dastardly Dick Turpin? Escape the clutches of Burke and Hare and move to the groove with party Queen Victoria! 

It’s the horrible history of Britain with the nasty bits left in – to entertain the whole family this August!
