Film and Food Festival coming to Nottingham this July

A Film & Food Fest will be visiting Nottingham this summer with four days of open-air cinema, local street food and live comedy.

Taking place on July 15th to 18th, the location for this year’s event will be Victoria Embankment, organised by AdventureCinema which is bringing staycation entertainment to 15 major cities across the UK in 2021.

Saturday and Sunday afternoons will be reserved for family films, with classics like The Lion King and The Goonies, and modern favourites like The Greatest Showman Sing-A-Long, Onward and Doolittle.

There will also be mouth-watering street food from local traders, curated by Street Food Warehouse. Visitors can expect everything from gourmet burgers and bruschetta to crepes and caramel ice-cream, along with a bar serving beers and bespoke cocktails.

Gates will open up to three hours before each film starts.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings will feature live comedy from some of the UK’s most exciting comedians, followed by blockbuster movies.

With a varied mix of films on offer – including favourites such as Grease and Dirty Dancing and some of 2020’s finest like Joker, JoJo Rabbit and The Invisible Man – there’s something for all the family.

The Film & Food Fest is coming to Nottingham this summer

The event will kick off on the Thursday with a special showcase of short movies from some of the UK’s finest independent filmmakers.

Different in each region, the showcase will highlight the work of local creatives, giving their films a major platform, with £2 from every ticket sold for the short film nights going to support local film organisations within each city.

To ensure the safety of its events, Film & Food Fest will be taking place exclusively in socially spacious, outdoor venues across the country. There will also be other measures in place, meaning the festival will be 100 percent compliant with government safety guidelines.


Thursday evening (short film showcase) tickets cost £6 + booking fee

Friday, Saturday and Sunday tickets start from £16.50 + booking fee

For afternoon showings, children 12 years and under go half-price + plus booking fee
