Wrap up warm and cosy up to a Christmas classic at the first ever Winter Film Festival

Curling up to a Christmas classic is an absolute must in the lead up to the big day, right? What with all those exhausting engagements and endless gift shopping, you deserve to unwind in your free time and let that festive feeling take hold!

The friendly faces at Brindleyplace know this all too well, and so, they bring to you their first ever Winter Film Festival, following the great success of their Summer schedule.

From Thursday 13th to Sunday 16th December, you can take your pick from a collection of seasonal greats, for adults, children and big kids alike! No matter your preference, there is a movie to suit.

All showings are free and will take place in the beautiful Central Square, a truly whimsical setting for the occasion, we’re sure you’ll agree. No need to worry about the wintry weather either, as there will be bundles of blankets and toasty heaters to keep you warm throughout.  Not to mention the array of hot refreshments available to kill those chills!


Seating will be available to those who arrive super early. However, bringing your own comfy seat is recommended to ensure you secure your spot as it is expected to get busy!

St Mary’s Hospice will be in attendance each day, hosting a range of fundraising activities; all in order to support local people living with life-limiting illnesses. Why not gift the price of a cinema ticket? A wonderful way to spread a little joy at Christmas. All donations will be hugely appreciated and whatever you have to give, warmly welcomed.

Now, we’re are sure you are just itching to know what movies are in store, so here you have it:
