Courtyard Christmas Shows on the big screen!

This Christmas we’ve teamed up with two local cinemas so you can enjoy The Courtyard’s 2019 pantomime, Cinderella and 2020 children’s Christmas show, Hansel & Gretel on the big screen!

As we remain closed, finishing off our Transform The Yard project and planning for the future, what better way to ignite the magic of Christmas than partnering with other cultural venues in the area!

The Loft Cinema in Hereford and Gloucester Guildhall will both be showing Cinderella, which was filmed live in 2019 by Wild Edric Media, on their big screens this Christmas and Gloucester Guildhall will also be screening Hansel & Gretel, the perfect Christmas show for under 7’s.

“We’re over the moon that our Christmas shows are being screened in these two cinemas. Not hosting our usual live Christmas shows has been devastating, but for audiences to access them in cinemas or online is just fantastic! In these difficult times, it’s so important to create partnerships and work together as an industry – and we look forward to working with The Loft Cinema and Gloucester Guildhall more in the future!” – Jessica Prosser, Head of Marketing & Sales at The Courtyard

The cinema screenings of Cinderella and Hansel & Gretel are a perfect opportunity for families to enjoy traditional Christmas shows in a safe environment while The Courtyard prepare to bring Jack and the Beanstalk back to their main stage in 2021.

“At the Guildhall we know Christmas is not going to be quite the same this year and for us we will be missing our usual live Christmas show.  In the spirit of collaboration we have teamed up with our friends at The Courtyard Hereford to bring you two super quality Seasonal shows aimed at young children and families alike which will be screened in the Main Hall”  – Jim Lockey Marketing Manager at Gloucester Guildhall.
