Events: Burghley House makes big announcement about the future of its summer Film Festival

Things to do in Lincolshire…

Burghley House has been staging film festivals in its grounds since 2013.

But the 16th century Elizabethan country house has announced it is shaking up its summer line-up and the 2019 event will be the last… however, a new ‘under the stars’ experience is coming from next year.

A spokesperson for the venue Mark Hibbert said: “When Burghley first screened a film festival in 2013 – with the Tudor house and sweeping parkland providing a spectacular backdrop – outdoor cinemas in historic settings were few and far between, but now a host of events happen right across the country.

“So, Burghley aims to offer something new and freshen up its summer evening entertainment with a brand new event from 2020 … bringing a heady blend of Balearic beats, live orchestra and a superstar DJ for a spectacular outdoor concert.”

“Instead of fantastic films, it will be a case of magic music for summer 2020 when ‘Classic Ibiza’, a concert for all the family that showcases dance-music’s most iconic tracks, creates a symphony of sound in Burghley’s gardens and parkland.

“More details will be revealed about the new event later in the year, but for this summer tickets are still available for the last ever Film Festival, a chance for locals and visitors to give the picturesque outdoor cinema a rousing send-off.”

The final Burghley Film Festival will be held on July 24-28.

Some of the biggest movies of recent years will be screened including The Greatest Showman, Bohemian Rhapsody and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. Other recent blockbusters shown will be Mary Poppins Returns, Peter Rabbit and the Oscar-winning Black Panther.

For younger movie goers, daytime screenings will include Incredibles 2, The Jungle Book and another Oscar-winner Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.

Daytime tickets give access to both family film screenings during the day, and evening tickets are valid for both evening films (which are not all suitable for children).

Early bird tickets are available in advance at £15.50 for adults and £10.50 for children until the end of June, and then £17.50 and £11.50 until the day before the event. On the day prices will be £18.50 and £12.50. Parking is free.
