Film fans will be able to enjoy two of the highest grossing musicals of all time in the great outdoors when Adventure Cinema comes to Cheshire in June.

Taking place at Tatton Estate’s Ashley Hall Showground near Altrincham, Bohemian Rhapsody and The Greatest Showman are two of the biggest foot-tapping, sing-along flicks of recent years.

The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound and culminates in their iconic performance at Live Aid.

The following night’s entertainment, Saturday, June 15th, is The Greatest Showman (PG), an original musical inspired by P.T. Barnum, starring HughJackman, Michelle Williams and Zac Efron, and which was a word-of-mouth phenomenon captivating audiences around the globe at the end of 2017 and early 2018. 

Gates for both films open at 7.30pm with the films starting shortly after sunset and both running for around 2 hours 15 minutes. There’s hot food and snacks available, an onsite bar and onsite parking.
