Two classic movies will hit the big screen under the stars at Northycote Farm and Country Park in June.

The beauty spot is hosting a summer weekend of film in the field that is normally used for overflow car parking, showing Grease (PG) on Friday 23 June and Top Gun (12A) on Saturday 24 June. Both start at 7pm.

A specialist outdoor film company is running the event in conjunction with the venue and it has already attracted a lot of interest through a dedicated Facebook page.

Councillor John Reynolds, City of Wolverhampton Council Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "There is a lot of interest in this event already and both are classic films.

"Northycote is an ideal venue for this and, if it is successful, we might consider other places around Wolverhampton to host more outdoor film nights."

Tickets start from £14, plus booking fee, and there is only a limited number remaining.
