About this event

Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa's elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn't fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results.

Driving into the site

Enter through the main Sandon Hall gates, opposite the Dog and Doublet


Always keep your speed to an absolute maximum of 10mph in the estate and 5mph when you enter the arena (after your ticket is scanned)


Tickets will be checked on site before you enter the arena, ask the member of staff if you’re interested in an upgrade. Please make sure you bought the right ticket for the amount of passengers in your car.


At the Great British Drive In films are played on the huge 100 sqm screen. For live entertainment such as music or comedy we film the acts on the stage and display them on the screen.


Audio is sent out over FM transmitters to your radio. All you’ve got to tune your car radio to 87.7FM. At times we play the sound at a low level from our stage, this shouldn’t be a substitute for a radio. If you want the best experience please either tune your car radio or bring a personal radio.

In very rare circumstances there can be a delay between audio and video due to the specific manufacturer of the vehicle. In this situation, please speak to a member of the team.


Our site allows everyone a clear view of the screen and we make sure everyone has plenty of space around them. In busier shows we may ask larger cars to park slightly further back to allow everyone a great view. If you would like to sit in your boot, that is ok, but given the height of boots you will be placed towards the back of site on busier shows. Please always, always, tell a member of staff if you aren’t happy with your view.

Sitting outside your car

Please feel free to set up seats outside your car, just always tell the staff member who’s parking you so they can leave enough room out the front (you must sit outside the front of the car).

Please also make sure you have a portable radio. It is important to note, this is a drive in cinema experience and sound is played by the individual speaker system of each guest’s car/portable radio, therefore if you sit outside your car you may experience some sound delay around the arena.

Getting out your car

We encourage guests to get out of their car and enjoy the grounds or visit the food and drinks vendors, just always be mindful of other guests.

Children must be supervised at all times, there is a large amount of vehicle movement and live animals onsite.


We strive to offer food at all our events. Please check out our social media for specific vendors nearer the time.


We have portaloos onsite that are cleaned on a regular basis; all include hand sanitizer.

During the movie

If you have any issues at all please put your hazard lights on and someone will come to your car. In the rare situation no one comes please visit our bar who will radio the relevant person. If you need to leave during the movie that’s fine, just let us guide you out. If you know you may need to leave early tell us before you park and we can put you closer to the exit road.


Please help us by putting all your rubbish in the bags provided, or even better, take it with you.


When the film is finished always remain where you are until staff guide you out. Please always remember to be careful when exiting and cautious entering the dual carriageway.

Bad weather

As guests you can sit safely inside your car and enjoy the film or entertainment in adverse weather. However, under extreme weather conditions including very bad lightning storms, we may have to turn our equipment off while the weather passes.
