Following its sell-out success last year, North London’s hugely popular contact-free entertainment venue, The Drive In at Troubadour Meridian Water, today announces it will reopen its gates on 12 April 2021. Whilst London’s cinemas and theatres remain closed, The Drive In, as a contact free venue, is able to welcome audiences back in April, with a spring season packed with new film releases, classic blockbusters and live performances. Tickets go on sale today and can be booked at thedrivein.london.
On the big screen, new releases include Godzilla vs King Kong, Wonder Woman 1984, Judas and the Black Messiah and The Little Things, with the return of popular classics such as Dirty Dancing, Grease, Back to the Future and a selection of fun family favourites for the Easter holidays including the new release, Tom & Jerry the Movie.
On the main stage, The Drive In’s programme of live events has enjoyed continued sell-out success. This new season sees the return of the UK’s biggest musical theatre concert series, West End Musical Drive In, which has featured stars from West End shows such as Hamilton, Les Mis, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, SIX, Wicked and Phantom of the Opera performing live on stage. 2021 guests to be announced.
The Drive In’s comedy line-up this spring is presented by Wahala Comedy Clash Jamaica Vs Africa and Comedy Roast UK, presenting the ultimate comedy showcase with special guests and music live on stage.
The Drive In experience also includes live pre-show entertainment and with its on-site kitchen ‘The Diner’ serving American diner-style hot food, snacks and drinks straight to your car, there’s everything you need for a Drive In party. Sound is played direct to vehicles’ speakers, with portable radios available for purchase.
The Drive In first opened its gates to the public on 4th July 2020 during the pandemic, offering audiences a contact-free way to experience film, theatre and live performances from the safety of their own cars. The venue has proved a huge hit, attracting diverse audiences from across London and the home counties and the producers look forward to expanding its programme in the coming months.
