The plans are subject to government guidelines permitting large gatherings outdoors, at a social distance, in three months’ time.

Arrangements will be put in place for the necessary social distancing, and all rules and guidelines prevalent at the time will be strictly adhered to throughout the event. The event is being planned with the co-operation and support of Chichester District Council.

The Movies and Music Weekend will screen a programme of popular and classic movies to appeal to family and general audiences, who will watch them from their vehicles with the sound coming through their car radios (provision will also be made for bicycles and motorcycles).
