On Saturday, July 27, the Oscar-winning Bohemian Rhapsody will be showing after Sunset on The Green (9pm).

The 12-rated film stars Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury and is a celebration of the music of Queen.

Before the main feature, there will be a screening of a short black and white film from Hunstanton Heritage Centre. The classic footage takes a railway journey from King's Lynn to Hunstanton.

The big screen returns on Saturday, August 17 (8.30pm) for a showing of the original PG rated Mamma Mia film. Another chance to sing along to some classic songs, this time from Abba.

Two great films are being shown this year, both featuring classic songs that I'm sure the audience will want to join in with.
