Sandringham Estate, the country retreat used by Queen Elizabeth II and other members of the royal family in Norfolk, will be hosting a series of drive-in films in September.

From 25th September, the royal estate will host a selection of films including Bohemian Rhapsody, Rocketman, A Star is Born, and The Greatest Showman.

Attendees will be provided with transmitters to allow the film’s audio to play in their car. A standard ticket costs £32.50 with booking fees applying. Those looking to upgrade their experience for an extra £7.50 will receive larger parking spots, deck chairs, a table, and popcorn. A pop-up bar featuring soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, popcorn, and snacks will also be set up.

Drive-in tickets can be purchased on the estate’s website. Additional events being held in the coming months include garden tours, apple-picking, a light trail and a Christmas fair.

In July, it was reported the amount of drive-in cinemas across the UK has increased since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. Media measurement firm Comscore reports the number of drive-in cinemas is now 40 compared to three prior to the pandemic.
