‘Mamma Mia’ sing-along will be played on Saturday August 29, and Blues Brothers will be shown on Sunday August 30.

On both evenings, gates will open at 6pm and the movie will start around 7.45pm. There will be a barbecue, popcorn, ice cream and mocktails on sale.

People can listen to the movie by tuning their FM car radio into the frequency given to them on the night.

All tickets which need to be purchased in advance, are available now. Both events are limited to 60 cars per night.

They cost £20 for a car of two, and £25 for three or more. Those with more than two people will be offered a small area beside their car for people to sit in if they bring along their own chairs.

Lions vice-president Peter Moore said: “We felt there was a demand for a safe social event and we need to keep fundraising to keep investing in the area. A drive-in movie seemed to answer both demands.”

During lockdown, the Lions have given money to The Food Larder and the Neighbour’s Kitchen. They have also been doing shopping trips and medication drops for those who are self-isolating.

Peter added: “We feel that the worse is yet to come, when the furlough scheme ends, there will be more demand on services like the Food Larder and we need to make sure we have the funds to help them.”
