New Marlow based start-up brings open-air cinema to Hambleden.

| |

Marlow based start-up, Firefly Events Ltd, is running two open-air movie nights, set in the beautiful grounds of Culden Faw, in Hambleden. On Thursday 24 August, Top Gun, the 1986 cult film featuring Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis, will be screened. On Friday 25 August, it will be Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Both films are ideal for watching under the stars with friends and family (Harry Potter is rated PG and Top Gun is 12A so families are welcome)

Tickets are available via the seetickets website Adult tickets are £14 each, children are £7 each and there’s a discount for groups of 10 or more. There is also the option to buy a VIP ticket which includes a luxury beanbag in prime position and a drink on arrival.  Go to for more information.

Each film will start at 8:30pm but the gates open at 6:30pm for all movie-goers to enjoy some music, tuck into some food and drinks and get settled down.

“The Barn” at Turville Heath will be supplying the food and will be serving some of their delicious signature dishes – goulash, homemade burgers and french fries.

There will be a bar serving a selection of alcoholic and soft drinks as well as sweets, ice-cream and popcorn. And to save queuing at the bar on the night, you can pre-order lager and prosecco and even order a blanket to snuggle up with via the ticket website.

Firefly Events is a start-up business, which has been set up by local entrepreneurs Alice Collins, Andrea O’Hagan and Janis Prescott. Firefly Events specialises in pop-up cinema – (indoor, outdoor and drive-in). Alice Collins, one of the co-founders said “We’re delighted to be running our own events this year. We love the location and we’re delighted with the film choice. It will be a great event and perfectly complements our business vision – to provide specialist pop-up cinema solutions to create a social, friendly, relaxed environment.”
