DRIVE IN Movies will return to the grounds of Hatfield House for one night only with a special screening of Mamma Mia! later this year.
CALLING all Super Troupers and Dancing Queens. Due to popular demand, Drive In Movies will return to the grounds of Hatfield House this summer – for one night only.
There will be a special screening of feel-good romantic musical comedy Mamma Mia! in Hatfield Park on Saturday, September 7.
Starring Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan, the film will be shown on the Showground on a large screen, with sound broadcast via your car radio.
The West End and Broadway smash hit turned 2008 Hollywood blockbuster tells the story of a 20-year-old bride-to-be trying to find her real father.
Sophie Sheridan (Amanda Seyfried) discovers in her mother’s diary that any one of three men might be her dad.
She invites all three to her wedding to fiancée Sky (Dominic Cooper) without telling her single mother, Donna (Streep), who was once the lead singer of Donna and the Dynamos.
New York-based Irish architect Sam (Pierce Brosnan), Swedish adventurer and writer Bill (Stellan Skarsgård) and British banker Harry (Colin Firth) are three possible dads, while fun-loving author Rosie (Julie Walters) and wealthy multiple divorcée Tanya (Christine Baranski) are Donna’s former bandmates.
Set on an idyllic Greek island, the plot serves as a background for a series of ABBA’s greatest hits – all sung by the cast, even the rather tuneless Brosnan. Think A-list karaoke – perfect for a fun night at the drive-in.
Gates to Hatfield Park will open at 6pm and Mamma Mia! – one of the biggest grossing movies in UK cinema history – will start when it is dark enough, approximately 8pm.
Advanced tickets cost £25 for a car with up to five people in it.
Any cars or other vehicles fitting more than five people in will be required to purchase additional tickets at £3 per person.
The cost for a car of five rises to £30 on the day. Additional tickets will be £5 per person.
