The Pop Up Picture House is moving on. First stop – Rick Stein at Cliveden!

| |

Remember the Pop up Picture House – classic movies and food from Tom Kerridge’s team, when over 4,200 tickets sold out in mere minutes?  

Building on that popularity and demand for more dates, The Pop-Up Picture Company has plans to involve a whole host of leading chefs at various unique venues across the UK.

The first guest chef and location has been confirmed, and it is….. Rick Stein in the grounds of Cliveden House! 

Entitled “Rick Stein’s Sunset Cinema”, the event will debut at the historic Cliveden House, in the famous walled Spa Garden, from 21st June for 3 weeks. Locals will be familiar with the impressive hotel, and its extensive and very popular National Trust gardens.  The cinema will then also ‘pop up’ with Rick at Chewton Glen Hotel on the edge of the New Forest from 9th July. 
Guests can expect a suitably summery menu of dishes curated by Rick Stein. The menu will use the finest seafood and produce, sourced from Rick’s trusted suppliers and the local area where possible and will include diverse tasty menus featuring lamb, a vegetarian option and plenty of Rick’s signature seafood dishes.
As with the original Picture House in Marlow there will be a different classic film to be screened each evening, providing an al fresco summer evening of fun, food and film!
In Rick’s words: “I’ve always loved going to the cinema, but sometimes I just love making myself something delicious to eat, putting on a great movie and settling down for the evening. The Pop-Up Picture Company is a perfect combination of all these elements – that great cinema atmosphere, with dinner served to the comfort of your sofa and the added bonus of simply stunning locations. I’m really looking forward to the summer.”

Tom Kerridge, one of the four friends that initially came up with the Pop-Up Picture House concept, is delighted the culinary movie experiences are continuing. Tom’s ice cream will again be served ‘usherette style’ at each screening, carrying on the tradition from the Pop-Up Picture House.

Tom added: “We were absolutely blown away by the demand for the event in Marlow and now want to share this with people in more unique and diverse venues. Rick is one of my all-time food heroes and to have him on board for the summer launch is phenomenal. What a great way to make a special occasion out of a trip to the cinema.”
