Here at House of Coco we are loving our new found freedom and making the most of it by frequenting every outdoor coffee shop, bar and restaurant possible. It’s prompted us to go on the search for more outdoor events in the UK.

Whether you’re looking for family-friendly flicks or cinematic classics, what better way to support the local events industry than by hopping in your car and attending a drive-in event near you.  Many events like these are experiential with fancy dress and sing-a-longs for extra excitement. 

Eventbrite saw a 300% increase in the number of drive-ins listed for April – being the first events allowed to resume again, and ticket sales for summer are ramping up.  It has put together a list of drive-in events around the UK for you to choose from, and there are even more to be found at eventbrite.co.uk.

Tue, Apr 27, 20:00

Slice of India • Derby

La La Land, Honeydale Farm

Sat, May 1, 19:45

Honeydale Farm • Sidcup

Starts at £48.50

Sidcup’s Honeydale Farm may be a long way from Los Angeles, but with food and drink and a bright LED screen on offer it is the ideal place to enjoy this smouldering modern-day musical starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone.

Drive, Sandon Hall

Sat, May 1, 21:30

Sandon Hall • Stafford

Starts at £19.46

Ryan Gosling (swoon) stars as an enigmatic stuntman in this B movie favourite, which by our reckoning has one of the greatest soundtracks of all time. “I just drive” he says – and so will you to get to this screening at Sandon Hall, Stafford.

A Star is Born, Stanford Hall

Fri, May 14, 19:45

Stanford Hall • Lutterworth

Starts at £27.54

If you missed A Star is Born at the cinema in 2018 then you won’t want to miss this showing at Stanford Hall, Lutterworth. Believe the hype: Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are astoundingly good and the chemistry between the pair is electric.

So, which will you pick?
