Wollaton Hall, which was used to portray the grand ‘Wayne Manor’ in The Dark Knight Rises, has already garnered much attention due to its Hollywood role, and the Elizabethan mansion will provide a stunning backdrop for the screenings.

Set within a beautiful 500-acre deer park, the natural setting of Wollaton Hall is perfect for a night under the stars watching some of the world’s best cinema. Bring a picnic along, and prepare for a memorable night of movie-going in one of Nottinghamshire’s most beautiful locations.
