FOLLOWING disappointing weather in June this year’s Cinema on the Carrs is going ahead on Saturday.

Wilmslow Town Council introduced the Cinema on the Carrs concept in 2015 when Mamma Mia proved hugely popular with the crowd, some in costume, singing and dancing throughout.

Earlier this year Wilmslow Town Council agreed to fund and organise its premier community summer event for 2019, which as in previous years will be free to attend, and allow friends, family and neighbours to gather and enjoy the films together in the beautiful surroundings of The Carrs Park.

The event will start at noon when children’s rides, entertainment and the food court will open.

The highlight of the afternoon will be the showing of The Incredibles on the big screen at 2pm, and also feature children’s entertainment, culminating in the annual Duck Race on the River Bollin, organised by the Girl Guides, after the afternoon film.

During the build-up to the evening feature we will be showing Hungarian Rhapsody, Queen, Live in Budapest, which features Queen in a concert from their massive 1986 world tour, including a host of their best-known hits.

Mamma Mia Here We Go Again is the main evening event, when for the second time The Carrs will rock to the sounds of ABBA, when the 2018 sequel to the original Mamma Mia movie will be shown on the big screen as darkness falls.

The evening’s entertainment will start to build from 6pm when residents can enjoy the food court and music on the big screen before the film starts at 8pm.

Town council chairman Martin Watkins said: “Last year’s event was hugely supported and enjoyed; indeed the numbers attending last year has led us to needing to upgrade the sound system, the screen size and the layout for this year.

One of the best things about Cinema on the Carrs every year is friends and neighbours getting together to have a great time.

“We can guarantee that those attending in 2019 will have a thoroughly enjoyable day; however what we can’t guarantee is the weather, so I would encourage all to support the event, come rain or shine, whilst the council prays for the latter.”
