Save the date and let all your friends know – Movie by Moonlight is returning to Bath’s Royal Victoria Park in Bath on Saturday 2nd September! Come along and enjoy an evening of fun and entertainment under the stars at this year’s outdoor film screening showing Baz Luhrmann’s Oscar-winning musical Moulin Rouge.
Starring Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman, Moulin Rouge was nominated for eight Oscars at the 74th Academy Awards in 2001 – winning for Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design.
You don’t need a ticket for the event – just turn up from 5pm and make a donation on the gate, with all funds raised on the night going towards The Forever Friends Appeal’s RUH Cancer Care Campaign – to help build a pioneering new Cancer Centre for the Royal United Hospital in Bath.
The film will start at approximately 8.30pm, but do arrive as close to 5pm as possible to pass through security and secure a good spot. We recommend that you bring warm clothes and a torch for later in the evening. You’ll be able to grab a bite to eat from one of our fabulous food outlets whilst enjoying the film.
Please note: Movie by Moonlight operates in partnership with RS Security. You are welcome to bring your own food and drink however glass bottles OR BBQs will not be allowed onto site and all bags will be checked upon entry.
Unfortunately children under the age of 12 will not be permitted onto site due to the 12A film certificate rating.
Donations: Our collectors will be collecting for the RUH Cancer Care Campaign at the gate and throughout the evening – please be generous (recommended donation of £5 per person).
Food & catering: Local vendors Fire & Brew and Splitscreen ice cream company will be selling their delicious pizzas and ice cream throughout the night. You are also welcome to bring a picnic and drinks (please note no glass bottles will be allowed onto site).
Recycling – love the park, leave no trace! MJ Church will be providing recycling units throughout the site – please leave no litter behind.
Entertainment: Heart FM’s Drive-time Presenter Julian Jones will be hosting on the mic from 7.30pm.
Fancy Dress: Is very much encouraged! There are a pair of Odeon Cinema tickets up for grabs for the best dressed male and female on the night.
Getting to Movie by Moonlight
Our site will be based in the Middle Common of the beautiful Royal Victoria Park, just below the Botanical Gardens. Nearest address: Marlborough Lane, Bath, BA1 2NQ.
Walking: The Park is just a short stroll from the city centre, here are some landmarks you may be able to relate to…
Bath Abbey: 7 mins
Milsom Street: 4 mins
Train and Bus station: 10 mins
Southgate shopping centre: 9 mins
Driving & parking: Please park in Charlotte Street Car Park (BA1 2NE) which is directly below the Park and just a short walk up to our site. This car park is long stay but has a set evening charge of £1.50 for vehicles arriving between the hours of 6pm and 8pm. Please note: vehicles cannot be left in Royal Victoria Park overnight; there is a road closure in place from 7am on Sunday 3rd September. Any vehicles left overnight will be towed away.
Public Transport: Bath Spa Train Station and the Main Bus Station are located at the bottom end of town – this is where all local and national buses/trains will arrive. From here, walking is the best way to get to the park but if that isn’t possible there is a taxi rank directly outside the train station entrance. Alternatively catch bus number X39 (towards Bristol) or 14 (towards Weston) from the bus station, both of which have stops just outside the park. Please bear in mind Sunday operating hours.
We can’t wait to see you all there!
Weather: Movie by Moonlight will be going ahead whatever the weather – unless there is gale force winds!
What to bring: Please bring warm clothes and a torch for later in the evening and waterproofs in case of rain. We also recommend bringing camping chairs or blankets to sit on as these aren’t provided. You are welcome to bring picnics however we have wonderful caterers on site.
What not to bring: Please do not bring glass bottles, BBQs or any portable stereos – these will be removed by security.
