CONKERS unveil new events from bingo to cinema

Let’s all make the most of the remainder of the summer, shall we? CONKERS, the award-winning family visitor attraction in the heart of the National Forest, has lined up some fantastic acts and events for summer evenings this year from Bingo to outdoor cinema at their covered outdoor amphitheatre. 

Music

On Saturday 22 August, the outdoor and covered Arena at Waterside Amphitheatre will see a Jersey Boys tribute act, The Four Seasons Experience, performing top hits from the ‘60s harmony group including dance routines and the most authentic Frankie Valli falsetto that you’ll ever hear! Tickets are £18 per person.

Bingo

The following week, on Friday 28 August, CONKERS hosts Bingo Revolution. Guests can get their dabbers ready for an evening of laughing, dancing and dabbing with host comedian, Cal Halbert, Glamorous Granny and DJ Jim Slipp, who will be playing a mix of songs from the 80s, 90s and 00s. Tickets are £14 per person.

Cinema

The Amphitheatre will also become an outdoor cinema with showings of the popular classics, Jurassic World (Saturday 29 August) and Dirty Dancing (Friday 11 September). Tickets are £12 per person.

Tickets for all events can be booked online at www.visitconkers.com/events

CONKERS’ licensed bar and Burger Shack will be open, as well as the restaurant which will need to be pre-booked. 

CONKERS recently received the ‘We’re Good To Go’ certification from national tourism agency, VisitEngland. This is a UK-wide industry standard, confirming that CONKERS has put in place processes to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing, reassuring visitors that the attraction adheres to Government and Public Health England guidance.
