Picnic Cinema at Muncaster Castle 2017


Picnic Cinema are returning to the glorious setting of Muncaster Castle in the West Coast of Cumbria on Friday 10th Aug and Sat 11th Aug.

Previous screenings at the castle have completely sold out and on Friday 10th Aug they will be screening The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert (15) so be prepared to showcase the very best Drag in your wardrobe with glam dresses, feathers and frills, heels, flip-flops and all. This film was MADE for Picnic Cinema!

Saturday 11th Aug promises a more relaxed affair with The Big Lebowski (18). This Coen brothers classic turns 20 this year and has inspired many festivals, conventions and bars around the world. Channel your inner Dude with cardigans, dressing downs and all out purple.

The Muncaster Castle Weekender boasts two nights of revelry, complete with the usual fun and games, on site BBQ and café, dancing and the chance to camp in the grounds of this iconic castle.

If camping isn’t your thing, many of the venues offer the option to upgrade with belle tents provided by Belle Hotel. This gives you the option to turn up to a readymade tent, complete with a range of different furnishing options (booking info can be found on the Picnic Cinema website) and Muncaster Castle also provides onsite accommodation at the Coachman’s Quarters and nearby Pennington Hotel.
