This festival is suitable for all ages, making Brindleyplace a perfect destination to bring the whole family for a day out.

“Whether you fancy a singalong with friends and colleagues after work, or if you feel like bringing the whole family down to the estate over the weekend, there’s a film for everyone! The atmosphere across the estate is always buzzing whatever the weather, so make sure you get here early to grab a deckchair.

This year’s festival is held in partnership with charity Sense which supports adults and children with complex disabilities.
