Festive films are coming to your car this Christmas, as a drive-in movies firm announces a run at one of the county's largest sites.

Last Christmas, drive-in movies was one of the few events able to go ahead, due to strict coronavirus restrictions.

And although this year there is more freedom, it seems the drive-in bug bit many, and the American-inspired pastime will be back.

The Drive-In Cinema will be at the Kent Event Centre in Detling, near Maidstone for two nights, on Tuesday, December 14 and Wednesday, December 15.

The company, who staged screenings at the site last year, will be showing the likes of Elf, The Grinch, Love Actually and Home Alone.

Founder Callum Campbell said: “We are so excited to be taking the best Christmas movies of all time on tour across the UK for a second time, and to give people something to look forward to.

"The Drive-In Cinema is a truly magical movie experience and a brilliant event for all the family - the perfect combination of nostalgia, novelty and entertainment. We had a great time last year and demand has proved popular again for 2021.”

Audiences will also be able to buy a range of street food and there will be extra entertainment, including interactive quizzes and live comedy.

Tickets for the tour, which will be the second year for the firm, are on sale at £33 per car, plus a booking fee. Book via the website here.

It is the second company to announce festive drive-in screenings this year, as Luna Drive-In will be at Brands Hatch. Find out more here.
