Nuneaton Lives moved to Abbey Street due to water logged gardens

Published on Wednesday, 29th June 2016

Come and join us for our annual free family event Nuneaton Lives this weekend!

THE town’s summer spectacular Nuneaton Lives is back bigger than ever with three great family films for everyone to enjoy.

The free open air cinema event will take place on July 2 on Abbey Street in the town centre.

It kicks off at half ten with a Frozen sing-a-long, followed by Dad’s Army at half twelve and ending with Star Wars – The Force Awakens at 3pm.

Expect oversized cushions, lots of fancy dress and all in all a family friendly day out.

Other free activities include a must for sci-fi fans - the Galaxy in the Gallery at the Museum & Art Gallery – where you will find a plethora of vintage toys and memorabilia.

There will also be live music with Anker Radio, Phase One Steel Band and Celebrity Jazz. Other acts include Punch & Judy and Julie Bromage Academy dancers. So grab a picnic, your favourite costume and come join in the fun.

Ian Powell, Director of Regeneration and Public Protection, said: “I am delighted to see this year’s Nuneaton Lives back with a great idea, sorry a huge idea! 

“The open air cinema is great for all the family to enjoy a fantastic day out. Bring a picnic, bring a lightsaber because this will definitely bring a smile to your face!”

Amanda Bourne, Secretary of Nuneaton Business Alliance, said: “Nuneaton Business Alliance is a voluntary organisation made up of local business owners who work together for the good of Nuneaton. 

“We applied for and received funding from Awards For All from The Big Lottery Fund to add an outdoor cinema to Nuneaton Lives Event this year.  We really hope our local community enjoy the day and we raise the 'feel good factor' in Nuneaton.”
