Sandford Parks Lido
Keynsham Road, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire GL53 7PU
We are teaming up with The Alfresco Film Company again in 2021 to bring you 2 outdoor cinema nights!
Here come the fuzz! In our opinion one of the greatest films ever, Hot Fuzz is a brilliant experience in the open air, combining huge laughs, blistering action, and some of the most quotable lines in movie history. The brilliant Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are joined by a stellar supporting cast, and in director Edgar Wright’s hands, the film is quite literally a British ‘Bad Boys 2’. You ain’t seen Bad Boys 2? Enjoy this modern comedy classic, poolside at Cheltenham’s brilliant Sandford Parks Lido.
Note: due to local noise regulations, the soundtrack to the film will be broadcast through wireless headphones which will be given to ticket holders on arrival.
COVID Safe Measures: in line with planned national guidelines for May, all groups of bookers must be from the same family/social bubble, and will be allocated socially-distanced pitches with up to four people in each. If your group includes more than four people, we’ll give you pitches alongside each other on the night. Please arrange to meet up at the venue together before checking in at the box office to help us manage this. Please observe social distancing rules while attending the event. Hand sanitiser will be available, and event toilets will be cleaned regularly in line with advice from Public Health England. If you are experiencing COVID symptoms, please do not attend the event.
Food and Drink: you are welcome to bring your own food and drink to the event, including alcohol. However, no glass is permitted onsite at the Lido, so please bring drinks in plastic containers only. Please respect the venue and take your litter home with you.
Seating: deckchairs in prime positions will be provided for those purchasing premium seats (plus a blanket to use for the evening), all other customers selecting standard seating must bring their own low-backed camping chairs, bean bags, deckchairs or picnic rugs.
Other Information: under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. The film is rated 15. Please respect the venue and take your litter home after the screening.
Parking: free parking is available from 7.30pm in the Keynsham Road car park immediately outside the Lido.
Weather policy: screenings go ahead in all but worst weathers. Only if there’s heavy, prolonged rain or high winds forecast will the screening be postponed or cancelled.

Umbrellas are permitted in the screening area until the film is about to begin, but must then be put away so that those behind you can see the screen.
