At Bishops Park, screenings take place in the first weekend of September, as follows:

September 4 - Leon
September 5 - Top Gun
September 6 - Grease

Doors open at 7pm with films starting at 8.30pm. Tickets for individual films cost £10 or £20 for a weekend ticket and can be booked online.

There is food, drink and popcorn available throughout the evening. As well as booking in advance, you can also turn up early and pay on the door.

At Fulham Palace, the Nomad Cinema presents films on the lawn on the following dates:

September 10 - The Graduate
September 11 - Gravity
September 18 - The Grand Budapest Hotel

Tickets cost from £10 - £28.50 and can be booked online. There are concessions for seniors, students, children 4 annd under and jobeeekers, while under fives and carers of those with a disability, learning difficulties or special needs can attend events for free.

Doors open at 6.45pm, with screenings at 7.45pm.

100% of The Nomad's profits go to The Sustainability Institute, an environmental and educational charity in South Africa which is making a difference to the quality of life for the families of Lynedoch Village and surrounding area.

To make the most of the occasion, The Nomad offers this advice:

Bring warm clothes, layers and blankets as it can get very cool towards the end of a screening. If the forecast looks a bit dodgy, pack some waterproofs just in case.

What should I bring?

  • A picnic (or enjoy the food and drink available on site – varies per event, see individual listings)
  • A torch or lantern can be useful
  • Warm clothes and blankets.
  • Raincoats, windbreakers and ponchos. Note: please be considerate if using an umbrella during a screening as it may block the view of those around you.
  • Rugs, tarpaulin or mats to sit on.
  • Chairs are welcome [low ones preferred!] but you may be asked to sit at the side or the back to avoid blocking other people’s view of the screen
