With over fourteen years of experience providing unique tented spaces to outdoor events and festivals, we can offer a complete venue tailored to the event organiser’s individual needs.

Our venue is versatile and reliable. Not only perfect for film screenings, but also fully equipped for live performance, cabaret, presentations and workshops. Cinema, Theatre, Entertainment & Education: Whatever the weather, The Groovy Movie Picture House will make your event unique.

Housed within a beautiful blue and red blackout marquee, custom built by Roustabout, complete with red carpets and a full lining, this is one of the most eye catching and visually pleasing venues available for hire.

We can provide all of our power requirements with our large and highly visible array of solar panels. This means a 100% carbon neutral venue, and an eye-catching, educational, environmentally friendly showpiece at your event.  This always attracts positive attention from the press, public and sponsors.

Our solar panels charge a bank of storage batteries to allow us to run day or night, rain or shine.  The venue be positioned anywhere on the site and are not dependent on the site generators or mains supply.

Our experienced technicians and crew will ensure that your event runs smoothly and your audiences and participants are well looked after.

Some event organisers like to provide seating and/or staging. The Groovy Movie Picture House can accommodate

up to 150 seats. 

All we require is a flat area of grass 18 meters x 20 meters, a portaloo or 24 hour toilet facilities near by and some

fencing sections to secure behind the venue. Security must be provided for the duration of our stay.

The venue can be hired as a whole or elements can be hired separately. Event organisers are welcome to provide their own frontage, signs or interior décor to make the venue their own, or leave it all up to us.
