AN outdoor cinema experience with a gin twist is being held at New Brighton Rugby Club this weekend.

Taking place from Friday to Sunday (August 20–22), the "immersive outdoor gin festival and cinema experience" will give you a chance to belt out the lyrics to some of the most popular musicals of recent years, such as Mamma Mia!, A star is born and The greatest showman, along with classics such as Grease and Dirty dancing.

So get those vocal chords warmed up.

A spokesperson said: "Get ready for good vibes, great films, and tasty gins as the order of the day.

"So bring your own chair, or hire a deck chair or giant beanbag, and sit back with a drink and get ready to enjoy the film on the outdoor LED screen.

"As this is a gin cinema event, guests can of course enjoy a wide range of gins and mixers, along with a fully stocked bar for any non-gin drinkers with a wide range of soft drinks.

"There will also be a selection of hot food and sweet treats available at all locations."

And a little rain won't get in the way, the show will go on. So bring a brolly or waterproofs. 

Ben Stonehouse, chief executive of Gin Cinema, adds: "We're looking forward to bringing our hugely popular Gin Cinema experience to movie lovers in Wirral and the surrounding area of Merseyside.

"Across the three days there are six brilliant films that we know audiences will love, and they’ll be able to do so whilst expanding their gin horizons, having a good old singalong, and tucking into a delicious bite.

"In line with current government guidelines track and trace will continue to be in operation, but there will be no social distancing required at our event. Should things change we will notify all attendees as soon as we have the information."
