Open air cinema at Kings Hill, by Alfresco Events, will also hold a screening at the Kent Showground, Detling

By Angela Cole

Eighties film classic Dirty Dancing will be screened at an open air cinema at the Kent Showground in Detling this summer.

Alfresco Events, which launched in Kings Hill last year with local mums Joanna Hillcock and Lucy Cumming at the helm, sold out in just over a week last year.

They have added the second, much larger venue at the Detling site this year, which will hold an audience of 2,000 film fans.

This year, with the new venue at Detling, viewers can sit back and watch a 40ft screen.

Gates will open at 6.30pm, with the screening at 9.15pm on Friday, July 14.

There will also be showings of Top Gun starring Tom Cruise and Pretty Woman, starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts in August at Kings Hill Sports Park.

Joanna said: "We are really excited about bringing our open air cinema to Detling. We’re working hard to create an unforgettable experience for all who join us for this unique cinema experience under the stars.”
