Event information for open air cinema ticket holders

We are very excited to welcome you to our open air cinema screening of The Greatest Showman on Saturday 18 September!  Please see below for important information about the event.

Event times:

6pm – Gates open for you to eat, drink and find a spot to watch the show
7.30pm* – Film starts
9:30pm – Event ends

*The film start time may be delayed by up to 15 minutes to get the best possible picture

Arrival and parking:

Entry to the event, whether by foot or by vehicle, is via the Edgbaston High School side entrance, off Westbourne Road (postcode B15 3TS). The gate will be open for you to drive or walk straight through and parking is available in either the carpark next to the Sports Pavilion or the adjacent EHS car park. Please note, there will be no access or parking via the Church Road main entrance to school.


Please have your ticket ready for us to scan when you arrive – either on your phone or a print out of the QR code. Subject to availability, tickets will remain on sale until the event starts, so if you have friends that would like to join you, please ask them to buy their tickets in advance at: www.trybooking.co.uk/BEDM . We are unable to accept cash payment for tickets on the gate.

What to bring with you:

  • Don’t forget something to sit on – this could be camping chairs, a picnic blanket, or even an inflatable sofa!
  • The film starts after sunset, so it will be dark on the playing field. A torch may be handy to help find your way back to your seat during the show. Sensible footwear is also advised.
  • We are hoping it will be dry and mild, but after the summer we have had, we all know the weather can be unpredictable at times! This is an open air event so you may wish to bring an umbrella, raincoat or blanket just in case.

Food and drink:

We have a fantastic line up of food and drink sellers to keep you fed and watered, including masala fish & chips and samosas from Cheeky Maharaja, a licensed bar from Tapped Pony and delicious dipped gelato lollies from La-Pop. Individual vendors will display allergen information – please check this carefully before you order and ensure you tell them about any allergies.  They will all accept card/contactless or cash payments (contactless preferred).

If you have any questions before the event, please email kdepolo@hallfieldschool.co.uk

We hope you enjoy the show!
