Fun-filled ‘Feel Good Film Festival’ at South Lake Leisure Centre!

Junior Sports Awards
Lord Mayor Councillor Kevin Savage is joined by Chairman of Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Sports Forum, Edith Jamison, to officially launch the nomination process for the Junior Sports Awards.

The ‘Play in the Community’ & ‘Outdoor Spaces’ Programme is bringing a fun-filled drive-thru ‘Feel Good Film Festival’ to South Lake Leisure Centre in Craigavon this October!

Movies will be screened in the South Lake Leisure Centre Car Park on the run-up to the Halloween weekend (29 – 31 October), with a schedule full of films for everyone to enjoy!

With three shows to be screened each day, you can park up and watch a range of fantastic films, including Call of the Wild, Hocus Pocus, The Addams Family, Toy Story 4 and Scoob.

Passengers will enjoy the spectacular screenings on a giant LED screen, with sound transmitted via a dedicated FM radio station.

The project is funded by the PEACE IV Programme, a cross-border initiative, financed through the European Union and managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB). It has been designed to support peace and reconciliation in Northern Ireland and the Border Region of Ireland.
