DUDLEY Castle is to be transformed into an open-air cinema again this summer for some al fresco horror.

Dudley Zoo and Castle has teamed up with Birmingham-based Flatpack Festival for two Beware the Moon events, with a showing of Jaws on Friday August 4 and The Wicker Man on Saturday August 5.

Andrea Hales, marketing manager at Dudley Zoo and Castle, said: “We’re pleased to be able to join forces with Flatpack Festival again this summer for more open-air cinema events at Dudley Castle, as they’re always popular evenings with visitors.

“We’ll have hot food available and a licensed bar, but visitors are welcome to bring their own picnics.

“And there'll also be a few special effects and surprises too, so we’re set to have two great nights of entertainment."

Tickets for the film screenings, which will take place in the courtyard of the 11th century castle, are already on sale - priced £12.50 per film, with a £10 concessionary rate.

Places can be booked online at dudleyzoo.org.uk or by calling 01384 215313.

Doors open each evening at 7.30pm, with the feature film beginning around 9.15pm.

Both events will go ahead whatever the weather, so visitors are urged to dress accordingly and bring their own chairs and picnic blankets. Age restrictions will apply.
