Open air festive film fun

Two open-air screenings of festive family films are taking place in Kettering in the run-up to Christmas.

Kettering Council is hosting the big screen events in Market Place.

Today (Thursday, December 18) animated film The Polar Express, starring Tom Hanks, will be shown from 5pm while Miracle on 34th Street will be shown from 3pm on Saturday, December 20.

The screenings are free and visitors are being advised to wrap-up in warm clothes.

The films are part of a festive programme which included the Disney smash hit film Frozen last Thursday.

Free parking is available during the screenings at all council-owned car parks, including the nearby London Road car park.
