April is coming to an end, and there’s no better way to wrap it up than with a memorable day out – this weekend has got all sorts of unique and exciting programmes happening, including a fancy movie-under-the-stars camping experience, a gastronomical party, and 2 circus acts in town.

If you think camping is all dirt and bugs, think again – Camp-In Cinema is camping fit for royalty, with comfy mattresses, a silent “Cinema Al Fresco session”, freshly barbecued dinner, sunset and sunrise yoga, and a live DJ set.
There will be 3 such sessions in total, with Six Days Seven Nights screening first on 28th April and played through your own personal Silent Cinema Earphones. Tents will be set up for you before the event starts, and will be equipped with mattresses, pillows, and a comfort pack that includes a cooling fan, personal lamp, and toiletries. All you have to do is to bring a change of clothes and a yoga mat if you wish to partake in their yoga sessions!
