Moonlight Movies at Trentham Gardens

Head down to the Trentham Estate and enjoy an outdoor film under the moonlight.

Bring along your picnic blanket and enjoy the fresh air with your family and friends - everything will be set up with social distancing in mind so you can sit back and relax.

If you “Want to break free” and enjoy an iconic film in the great outdoors, we’ve got the perfect option. “Gimme, gimme, gimme” a night at the movies!

We might not be partying by the lakeside this summer but we’re still putting on “The Greatest Show” with our Moonlight Movies. Pack a picnic and get your popcorn ready “’cause Saturday night’s the night” for Rocketman, “We Will Rock You” with Bohemian Rhapsody, "A Million Dreams" will come true with The Greatest Showman and “Knowing Me, Knowing You” you won't want to miss Mamma Mia.

Also showing is the Oscar-winning film 1917, set in the First World War and telling the story of two young British soldiers as they race against time to complete a seemingly impossible mission, and the Lion King (2019), photorealistic adaptation of the classic ‘90s animation, The Lion King journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born.

Events start at around 8.30pm with entry to Trentham Gardens from 7pm.
