We worked on an exciting new project, transforming the Lincoln Arboretum into an outdoor cinema! We worked alongside DevelopmentPlus to organise the free screening for the local people of Lincoln.

The day was busy and packed full of eager film lovers who enjoyed watching family favourites Moana and Beauty and the Beast. The first screening started at lunchtime which was Moana, everyone enjoyed singing along to the songs throughout the film!

The second film screening was the 2017 adaptation of the Disney classic Beauty and the Beast, which was shown at 3:30pm. This film seemed like a favourite as the crowds started to get bigger in the Arboretum!

The outdoor cinema screening was very popular in Lincoln!

DevelopmentPlus contacted Blueprint:Film to help organise the event, the aim of the event was to raise more awareness about the work they do and to offer a fun day out for local families in Lincoln.

The organisation work alongside people in the community, facilitating their involvement in decisions that affect their lives, supporting them to identify and develop initiatives that they feel will improve their quality of life socially, environmentally, economically and through learning.

“The afternoon went really well, we hope everyone had a great time!”

Lynsey Collinson, a volunteer at DevelopmentPlus was very happy with the outcome of the event, “The afternoon went really well, we hope everyone had a great time!”

DevelopmentPlus were at the event offering advice and sweet treats!

All of their work in Lincoln and Lincolnshire is based on the values of community development, working alongside people and valuing their skills and abilities, they also provide opportunities for personal development.

Blueprint: Film were also hired to run an outdoor screening for Viva Skeg Vegas which is the annual VW meet up in Skegness. It was a lively show, filled with lots of enthusiasts! Every year they have a dedicated theme for the event and this year they had decided to do a Monty Python theme. During our film screening we showcased classic Monty Python films and played the original soundtracks which everyone loved!
