The Isle of Wight’s first drive-in Christmas cinema – in aid of Wessex Cancer Trust’s Building for the Future appeal – is heading to Robin Hill.

Tickets go on sale today (Friday) for the event, named Drive-in Films for Christmas.

It will feature six festive favourites screened over two days.

The films on show on Saturday (1) are Elf, Home Alone and Love Actually, while on
Sunday (2), The Polar Express, Santa Claus The Movie and The Holiday will be aired.

All money raised will go towards the Wessex Cancer Trust’s £100,000 appeal to create a new cancer wellbeing centre on the Island.

So far, around £62,000 has been raised, including more than £30,000 from the Inflatable
Rainbow Run held in August.

Community Engagement Manager Lorraine White says she wanted the next event to be a big one:

“This is the perfect opportunity to cosy up in the car with your family, while watching a Christmas classic and raising money for Islanders affected by cancer in the process – it doesn’t get much better than that.”

The charity has secured the support of headline sponsor WightFibre to host the event.
