Chester Performs in Frodsham

My wife and I have just come back from a fun evening at Castle Park. We watched the classic British film from 1951 of The Lavender Hill Mob starring Alec Guiness outdoors, courtesy of Chester Performs and their outdoor screening equipment.

The film is a humorous romp of a 'gentle' bullion heist where the villains ultimately get away with very little and then get caught.  There is as much joy in the film's script as there is in appreciating bomb damaged London and what passed as high tech in 1951.

It is great fun to be sat in a garden chair having a picnic watching a movie outdoors.  The sound quality was fantastic as we were all equipped with headphones.

Castle Park House makes an excellent backdrop. 

Chester Performs are returning three more times this summer with:
Breakfast at Tiffany's on 2 August;
Leon on 16 August; and,
The Jungle Book on 30 August.

All showings start at 8:45 with doors opening at 8:15.

Enjoying the show with Castle Park Arts Centre Trust Chairman Peter Vickery
