Hazel Grove Park and Ride to Host Christmas Film Fest

25 Nov 2016

Stagecoach Manchester’s Hazel Grove Park & Ride is set to host a festive-themed charity drive-in movie event as an early Christmas treat for Stockport locals. 

For one day only, on Sunday 27th November, the drive-in cinema will screen three Christmas classics, The Santa Clause, Home Alone and The Muppet Christmas Carol, across its 400 space Park & Ride site. 

Tickets for the special screenings will be £10 per vehicle, with at least half of the ticket price going to the leading bus operator’s charity of the year, Prevent Breast Cancer. 

There will be five showings throughout the day, with The Santa Clause showing at 10am and 12.30pm, Home Alone at 2.45pm and The Muppet Christmas Carol at 5pm and 7.15pm. Tickets are not available to pre book so guests will be admitted on a first come first serve basis on the day. 

Stagecoach Manchester managing director, Christopher Bowles, said: “After the huge success of last year’s event, we’re excited to bring the festive spirit to Stockport and raise some money for a fantastic cause, Prevent Breast Cancer. We have a real mix of Christmas classics on show, so it will be a day of family fun and we hope to see the locals turn out in force!” 

Nikki Barraclough, executive director at Manchester-based Prevent Breast Cancer said: “As the UK’s only charity entirely dedicated to the prediction and prevention of breast cancer, we rely solely on donations to keep up our good work. Events like this one are the perfect way to raise funds for our four pillars of research, which are: gene research, early detection and screening, preventative drugs and diet and lifestyle.

“We’re delighted to have Stagecoach Manchester on board as one of our major supporters and this drive-in movie promises to be a fun-filled day for all the family.”

Bus services will run from Hazel Grove Park & Ride as normal.  Free parking will also be available for customers catching the bus but not watching the movies.
