Parking is free but please note on some evenings when events are taking place at Saffron Hall, spaces can be limited. Please note: The school gates will be locked approximately 20 minutes after the end of each evening film – please leave the property as promptly as possible once the film ends.
Disabled parking spaces are available at the rear of the school. See more on accessibility here.
Doors open 30 minutes before screenings start (except for Dementia-Friendly and Autism-Friendly screenings when the doors open an hour prior to the screening start time to allow for socialising).
Please make sure you leave a suitable amount of time before the film to purchase refreshments as queues can form ahead of busy screenings.
Please note: The school gates will be locked approximately 20 minutes after the end of each evening film – please leave the property as promptly as possible once the film ends.
