Helmingham Hall Gardens will be the venue for an outdoor cinema experience this summer.

The event will repeat the success of similar events held in the grounds of the 16th-century moated manor house and formal gardens last year.

The Star & Mouse Picture Show will screen classic films including Pretty Woman, Jurassic Park and Top Gun.

Organisers say the event will have a "boutique festival vibe" and there will be entertainment before the film starts at sundown, including live music, along with street food and drinks. 

There will also be the opportunity to take a stroll around the famous gardens near Stowmarket.
