Tips and Information for Northampton’s Outdoor cinema at Delapré Abbey

Important Information about our Film festival in Northampton

Right here we go, first of all. Like our fb page as we do updates about event on there.


When you arrive at the abbey there is car parking around in their public car park. We are located on the battlefield in front of the abbey, there is no vehicle access and you will have to walk there.

Film times

We open at 6:30pm for evenings and 1230 for the day screenings NOT before. (Excluding Sunday, their timings are 530pm - 830pm) You can arrive earlier and sit in your camping chair whilst in the queue, that’s fine.

Please bring warm clothing, blankets and chairs (unless you have brought VIP CHAIRS are NOT provided. Picnics are welcome, as we are only one of the events left that allow picnics and drinks please take your rubbish home.


We will NOT have a bar, you're allowed to bring your own drink. At the time of this update, there is no catering due to unforeseen circumstances, we are working hard to rectify this and will update further. There is a local cafe on site which is open between 10am and 4pm.

What to expect ? When you arrive, Music will be playing through the speakers whilst you sit and chill with your friends and family, the past 2 years or so have been tough, so enjoy some friend/family time in some safe surroundings.

The film will be the last duration of the event, so for example if it’s a 2 hour film and the event finishes at 1030pm the film will start at 830pm ish.

None of the events have sold out (in fact with everything going on in the world we saw a decline in tickets) so there is plenty of space and tickets available on the door. Regardless of the attendance it’s all about you and what you make, this is your time, your moment, your friends, your family, we just provide the atmosphere and film


Like all events, we operate in most weather conditions, only in extreme weather conditions would we cancel/postpone an event, as this is a film festival weekend and we have 5 screenings, if your screening is not up to what you would like i.e overcast weather - you may be able to transfer between events that are not sold out.
