The company, which specialises in cinema under the stars between June and October every year, has also launched some drive-in cinema showings in London and other major cities in response to the coronavirus outbreak and the need for social distancing.

But its hugely popular outdoor cinema later in the summer is also still going ahead.

The first in Kent will be held at Leeds Castle, between Thursday, July 30 and Saturday, August 1. Screenings will be of the movie based on the period drama Downton Abbey; The Greatest Showman starring Hugh Jackman and the classic Grease.

Following that will be Swanley Park's showings of the Elton John biopic Rocketman and the 80s classic starring Patrick Swayze, Dirty Dancing.
