Picnic Cinema

RESCHEDULED: Bohemian Rhapsody

Far more than outdoor cinema, the full experience includes dressing up, camping over and letting your hair down with fun, games entertainment and more before settling down to a screening of the epic biopic Bohemian Rhapsody (12A). Don’t be shy, belting out those queen songs at the top of your lungs is allowed, and throw in a good proportion of dancing too.


Friday 23rd August


In the heart of the Eskdale Valley

Nearest Postcode: : CA19 1TH



Iconic Queen hits mixed with a helping of 70’s & 80’s Classic Rock hand picked from Captain Picnic’s record collection.


Let your inner frontman shine with jumpsuits, flamboyant clothing and eyeliner. Don’t forget the big hair, wigs and vest tops. You’ve got to make an impression, darling!
