What could be better than watching adventure films with a backdrop of the stunning Lake District? Well this June, Grasmere is the place to experience just that.
Organised by the award winning Kendal Mountain Festival and in partnership with South Lakeland and Eden District Councils and the Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership, these outdoor cinema showings are to support the communities affected by the 2015 floods with Ullswater being the next destination in July.
24th and 25th June 2016 are the dates for the Grasmere outdoor cinema showings on Broadgate Meadow. There will be adventure films for adults as well as family friendly showings and guest speakers. Along with the films will be live music and local food and beverage stalls. Bring a picnic, make a day of it and walk and wander around Grasmere and Rydal. Grasmere Water is a delightful walk or head up onto the fells where you’ll be able to view the cinema site from above. Enjoy lunch in one of the pubs or cafes in Grasmere Village before heading to Broadgate Meadow where the gates open at 5pm.
Where to stay? If you’ve not been to Grasmere before then you’re in for a real treat. There’s lots of places to stay but our tip is Raise View House on White Bridge. Lovely rooms with views of Helm Crag, an honesty bar and freshly cooked breakfasts. The quality is confirmed by their recent Superior Award from Cumbria Tourism. Rooms on start from £120 for doubles, £65 for their single room or choose the new Silver How suite for a real treat. Visit, http://www.raiseviewhouse.co.uk/ to view rooms and to book.
