One of our favourites – we are super excited to announce the 4th film in our Outdoor Screening season  – this brilliant 2014 New Zealand mockumentary horror comedy film, What We Do in the Shadows. Shown outside in the heart of Arnos Vale, a national Heritage site within 45 acres of Autumnal woodland.

What We Do In The Shadows, Kiwi filmmakers Taika Waititi (Eagle Vs Shark) and Jemaine Clement (the non-Muppet-songwriting half of Flight Of The Conchords) have made a brilliant connection: what are vampires if not the ultimate manchildren? They suggest that being undead must be the ultimate state of arrested development — it’s ‘living’ without aging, after all. So much so, their characters are not only permafrozen in immaturity, like neverending students, but also effectively fish out of their generational waters, as clueless about fashion as they are information technology .Empire Magazine

We are offering two types of tickets this year; you can bring your own chair, or choose to go for a pre-positioned deck chair at the front of the screen. Don’t forget your cosy blanket!


BRING YOUR OWN CHAIR TICKET FLASHSALE:  £8 (limited tickets available) SOLD OUT




PARKING AT HERE Bristol: 6pm


START TIME: 7.20pm

We hope you have a really special evening. As a charity we still face an annual shortfall in our finances  and we rely on these events to keep us open for our community. There are a number of ways that you can contribute resources to the life and work of Arnos Vale.  We’d love you to donate £1 with your ticket, or you might like to give your time as a volunteer  or consider giving us a regular donation


Proof of purchase will be required at the gate, please bring ID. One ticket gets you into one screening. You can enter through the main gate on Bath Road, or through the top gate on Cemetery Road. No refunds can be given, except in the case of the screening being cancelled. If this is the case you will be notified by email. Please bring a torch and take your rubbish with you.

Food & drink

Delicious food and drink will be provided by Cleverchefs (please don’t bring your own)  They will be cooking up some dirty dog hot dogs, popcorn, boozy hot chocolate and providing a bar. There will be sandwiches and cakes available in the cafe as well. If you have any specific dietary requirements just send them a message on the Cleverchefs at Arnos Vale Facebook page.

No alcohol, glass or ceramics to be brought on to the premises.

Getting here

Parking is reserved for Blue Badge holders only and must be reserved in advance (email: bookings@arnosvale.org.uk) We suggest travelling on foot, by bike or on public transport. However, if you bring a car our lovely neighbours at HERE Bristol have kindly lent us their car park for the night (just 3 mins walk away)

What happens if it’s raining?

In the event of wet weather, the screening will still go ahead. Only in the case of extreme weather, such as dangerously high winds will the screening be cancelled, and you will be notified by email. Please make sure to check the forecast and dress appropriately, and bring blankets. Out of consideration for fellow viewers please do not use an umbrella if there are people behind you.


How do I get my tickets? Our booking system, Event Expresso will send the tickets by email. Please check your junk file.

Can I bring my dog? We recommend that you don’t bring your four legged pal due to the audio volume.

Will the top gate be open? Yes, from 6pm (please allow the earlier screening attendee’s to exit first)

Can I bring my own drink and food? No, we ask that you buy from the cafe on site, open from 6pm

Is parking available? Yes, at HERE Bristol on the Bath Road

Are there toilets? Yes, in the Spielman Centre and 1 disabled  plus 1 standard portaloo outside

What’s the accessibility like? The venue is wheelchair accessible. If you have any additional needs then please get in touch and let us know how we can help you.

Can I smoke? Yes, in the designated smoking area

What is the advantage of buying a deck chair ticket? The chair will already be in position and you’ll get a good view of the screen

Can I make a night of it and watch both films? Yes, you most definitely can! Please get your hand stamped on entry so that we know you have a ticket for both events

What should I wear? Bring layers and a raincoat/waterproofs. It will get cold, so hats, scarves, gloves and blankets are recommended.

I’ve changed my mind, can I get a refund? Unfortunately the tickets are non-refundable or transferable. As a charity we still face an annual shortfall in our finances  and we rely on these events to keep us open for our community. As a small charity we don’t have the team capacity to manage the administration of refunding tickets effectively.
