Grease Summer Nights screening at Wentworth Woodhouse

This is completely surreal. I’m sat in a sea of Pink Ladies (and the odd T-Bird) on the lawn of the magnificent Wentworth Woodhouse for a screening of the 70’s classic, Grease. People have come prepared; with chairs, picnics, and plastic wine glasses ready to sing their hearts out, and mouth along with every famous line. Which they proceed to do. We all do!

Like probably every other person there, I’ve seen Grease about a hundred times, but that only adds to the fun of the occasion, which is just like watching one of your favourite flicks with a few hundred mates. As the last light disappears, we all cheer As Danny Zuko appears on the screen for the first time, and whoop for the Pink Ladies as they declare they’re going to ‘ruuuule the schooool.’ We belt out Hopelessly Devoted, warble along to Beauty School Dropout, and by the time We Go Together hits the screen, we’re all on our feet dancing on the lawn. It’s been the ultimate family night out.

Hosted by Summer Nights Outdoor Film Festival, as part of its 2019 tour, and presented by QUAD on an inflatable screen, Summer Nights is the chance to enjoy a unique open-air cinematic experience at stunning heritage venues.

Wentworth Woodhouse will be screening family favourites all weekend long, with Bohemian Rhapsody this evening (Friday August 16), and Mamma Mia: Here We Go again tomorrow (Saturday August 17).
