Launching the Drive-In at Beacon Park

Watch Grease on a big screen in beautiful Beacon Park on Saturday 12 August 2017.

Lichfield District Council is inviting everyone to book their tickets and then grab their leather jackets and pile into their cars to watch the first ever Drive-in Movie at Beacon Park.

The cult musical Grease will play on a giant inflatable screen to movie-lovers from the comfort of their cars.

On the night, drivers simply tune their radios into the movie soundtrack frequency to hear the film and all the classic songs, including Summer Nights, You’re the One that I Want, Alone at the Drive-in Movie, Greased Lightnin’ and many more.

There will also be a reserved area in front of the cars for on foot ticket holders to bring along chairs and enjoy the film outside.

Councillor Iain Eadie, Cabinet Member Leisure, said: “Beacon Park is such a fantastic local resource with a packed programme of activities running all year round, and we’re delighted to add a brand new event with the launch of our first ever drive-in movie. Grease is the perfect opening film, and everyone is welcome to dress up as Pink Ladies or T Birds, but it’s not compulsory!”

Lakeside Bistro will be selling movie snacks, such as hotdogs, popcorn and drinks, which will add to the drive-in atmosphere.

See Grease on a big screen at Beacon Park on Saturday 12 August. Gates will open at 7pm and the film will start at 9pm.

Entry is by ticket only which must be pre-booked. It costs £20 per car with a maximum of four people (£5 extra a head), and £5 to attend on foot which includes headset hire, plus a £15 refundable deposit for each headset, payable on the night.

“It should be a fun night and we’re expecting demand to be high, so make sure you book your tickets before the rush,” added Cllr Eadie.

Tickets are available to buy at Beacon Park’s Ranger Station, over the phone by calling 01543 308867 or online at where you will also find the Drive-In Movie Frequently Asked Questions.
