Funfair, future skills and a Valentine’s film this February at the Parade Square

A week-long funfair, an interactive skills workshop for young people and a drive-in film screening for those who forget Valentine’s Day can all be enjoyed at Parade Square at Bordon & Whitehill this month.

On Friday, 24th February, enjoy a showing of 50 First Dates with Ticket Cinema either cuddled up in your car or on one of the deckchairs with blankets lined up under a cosy marquee in front of the state-of-the-art 50 square metre, 2K-quality screen.

Movie-goers can also order meals from the comfort of their seats from The Shed’s 350 Burger, who are offering free delivery to those who order using the code displayed on the big screen on the day. Run by Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company, Ticket Cinema launched in summer 2022 and is one of the few unique, independent drive-in cinemas in the region.

Ticket Cinema doesn’t just inspire through films, it also wants to inspire future generations through a Skills Workshop on Sunday 26th from 10am-4pm, to engage with young people and inspire their future careers by showcasing what local businesses can offer. It will give young adults the chance to get hands-on and try some new skills across a range of areas from the music industry to graphic design, even first aid to firefighting. This event is targeted predominantly at 16-23 year olds, encouraging them to remain in the area to be a part of the future of their town as a great place to live, work and develop.

Kids (and big kids) will also be thrilled to hear that the Funfair is back at the Parade Square over February half-term, from Friday 10th until Sunday 19th between 1pm-8pm. The Funfair boasts a wide range of attractions, from classic dodgems and bungee trampolines to games stalls and much more. Guests won’t go hungry either with the full menu of fun fair favourites; think burgers, hotdogs, candyfloss and donuts plus lots more.

So bring your friends and family and enjoy a February of fun in Whitehall & Bordon.
