Drive-in cinema event can­celled due to heavy rain­fall

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

A DRIVE-IN cinema event planned for Peter­bor­ough’s Ferry Mead­ows Coun­try Park has been can­celled due to the wet weather.

The Movie on the Mead­ows event, planned for this week­end, has fallen foul of the wettest April on record.

Film-lovers in Peter­bor­ough had been hop­ing to see Back To The Fu- ture screened tonight and Mamma Mia! to­mor­row night at the Or­ton Water­ville site.

How­ever, or­gan­is­ers Nene Park Trust has said due to the ef­fect of “un­prece­dented” lev­els of rain­fall on the site’s ground con­di­tions it is “im­pos­si­ble” to hold the event.

Su­san Evans, vis­i­tor ser­vices man- ager at Nene Park Trust, said: “It is with great re­gret that we have had to can­cel this ex­cit­ing new event, how­ever our pri­or­ity is al­ways the pro­tec­tion of the park land­scape and the safety of our vis­i­tors and staff – and with the ground con­di­tions as we have never seen them be­fore at this time of year we were not happy we could guar­an­tee ei­ther.”

Ticket hold­ers are en­ti­tled to a full re­fund and can ob­tain this at the Vis­i­tor Cen­tre at Ferry Mead­ows dur­ing the month of May with their ticket.

The vis­i­tor cen­tre is open week­days, from 11am to 4pm and week­ends 10am to 5pm.
