The Plantation Garden is a Grade II English Heritage garden on Earlham Road. It encompasses nearly three acres and its features include a Gothic fountain, flower beds, lawns, an Italian terrace, a “medieval” wall, a summer house, wooded walkways and a rustic bridge. It is a unique garden, a haven of peace and tranquility and a glimpse of a bygone era.

From July 20 to 23, we are screening four major titles, Alien, Ghostbusters, Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie and Grease. Alien will deliver chills and chills, leaving you wondering exactly what that shadow on the wall is or if the rustling in the bushes is something a little more sinister!

Ghostbusters promises a nice mix of ’80s nostalgia and the comedic grandeur of lead roles Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd in a movie that only gets better with age!

Ab Fab will be a fun Saturday night filled with high fashion, high comedy and lots of high jinks, closing the weekend the only way we know how to do it with a big singalong… Grease is definitely the word and the ones we hope to hear you all sing along with at the end.

We actively promote disguises, especially for Ghostbuster, Grease, and Ab Fab – definitely pack the Bolly dahling! By all means, if you feel the urge to come as something from Alien, that will be encouraged as well!

From August 17-20, another quartet of class numbers with La La Land, Clueless, Hunt for the Wilderpeople and North by Northwest are on offer. La La Land was the juggernaut of awards that left a lump in the throat and a leap for the 10,000 people who came to see it earlier this year.

Clueless has become a cult classic paving the way for many modern interpretations of Shakespeare, as well as the multitude of “teen movies” that have dominated our screens and brought us some of our biggest stars.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople was a word-of-mouth sensation on the festival circuit which, showcasing many first-time talent as well as movie stalwarts, is a poignant yet intelligent comedy that shouldn’t be missed.

If you love a classic look no further than North by Northwest, a case of mistaken identity leads to some of the most recognizable scenes in movie history.

What could be better than a glass of something cold and refreshing while lounging in a lounge chair watching one of your favorite movies with a group of friends in this amazing setting – well, we don’t think so. that it can be beaten and we’re really looking forward to bringing contemporary, cult and icy classics to the insanely large, bouncy silver screen.

There is a licensed bar on site to keep you adequately hydrated throughout the evening, we will also have a selection of small plates on offer from our highly recommended restaurant, The Dining Rooms, if you fancy a snack but don’t hesitate. not to bring a picnic. We will provide you with a limited supply of blankets, cushions and deckchairs so that you can spend the evening in cinematic comfort.

We can’t wait to see you all there, it’s such a fun event to work on, welcoming you all to the amazing setting of The Plantation Gardens while being able to show off a gem on screen is definitely a perk of the job.
