Hertfordshire's Open Air Cinemas
I define anyone to not enjoy an open-air cinema on a lovely warm day, and Hertfordshire has lots to choose from, with the majestic backdrop of stately homes to the ground of a luxury hotel or even in a lavender field.
Here’s a selection of just a few:
Everyman Secret Garden at The Grove
Everyman returns to the Grove this summer with its spectacular open-air cinema running from 14 July to 3 September. Set in the hotel’s walled garden, complete with comfy bean bags, headphones provided for optimal sound quality wherever you are sitting and a pop-up bar serving premium drinks and snacks.
Movie choices include hit musical movies such as The Greatest Showman and Mamma Mia, Disney favourites including Frozen and The Lion King, plus cult classics Notting Hill, Pretty Woman and Top Gun Maverick.
