Outdoor Film: Purple Rain (15) at Wollaton Hall

Sunday 25 Aug - Sun 25 Aug

Summer Nights is a festival of outdoor film screenings in beautiful heritage locations throughout the summer.

A young musician, tormented by an abusive situation at home, must contend with a rival singer, a burgeoning romance, and his own dissatisfied band, as his star begins to rise.

A victim of his own anger, the Kid (Prince) is a Minneapolis musician on the rise with his band, the Revolution, escaping a tumultuous home life through music. While trying to avoid making the same mistakes as his truculent father (Clarence Williams III), the Kid navigates the club scene and a rocky relationship with a captivating singer, Apollonia (Apollonia Kotero). But another musician, Morris (Morris Day), looks to steal the Kid's spotlight -- and his girl.

Join us for this unforgettable cinematic event at the wonderful Wollaton Park, Nottingham. Wollaton Hall and Deer Park is a spectacular Elizabethan mansion and park set in the heart of Nottingham.

Wollaton Hall country house is now Nottingham Natural History Museum, with Nottingham Industrial Museum in the out-buildings. The surrounding park land includes immaculately kept formal gardens, a botanic garden and the oldest cast iron glasshouse in Europe.
