Although we always hope our outdoor events will have great weather, the British summertime can be unpredictable…

Please see below for details of how we proceed with events if there is bad weather.


Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre

Being outside, in the charming setting of Grosvenor Park will be an integral part of your (and the actors’!) experience. We’ve witnessed some gloriously balmy afternoons, inspiring sunsets and even the odd thunderstorm. It’s all part of the wonderful experience of being outdoors. If you’re worried, buy a covered seat!

Our advice is to come as prepared as possible for all types of weather. For afternoon matinées bring a shady hat, sun screen and sunglasses, and for evening performances we would recommend bringing warm clothes.

Raincoats are recommended; you may bring an umbrella but please refrain from using it during the performance if it’s obscuring someone’s view.

Occasionally very bad weather may mean we have to stop and re-start the show, with a maximum 60 minutes delay allowed. We have a covered marquee area for audiences in uncovered seats to take shelter. If bad weather continues beyond 60 minutes, we may have to cancel the show. In this instance, you will be offered either a full refund, the chance to see a different performance, or the value of the ticket in Storyhouse vouchers.

At Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre, we will never cancel a performance before the advertised start time, as the weather can change very quickly.

If a performance is cancelled, tickets will be exchanged or refunded.


Moonlight Flicks

Being outside, Moonlight Flicks can be affected by the weather.

Our advice is to come as prepared as possible: warm jumpers and raincoats. If there’s some light drizzle, we will proceed, but torrential or stormy weather may mean we have to cancel the screening.

If we do cancel a screening, all bookers will be emailed and information will be added to the weather page on the Moonlight Flicks website – click here to see latest udpates.

If a screening is cancelled, tickets will be exchanged or refunded.

It’s Britain, and even a miserable day can turn into a balmy evening, so we will be keeping an eagle eye on the weather and posting updates on the Moonlight Flicks’ weather page each day, so make sure to pop back before your visit.
