Sidcup’s big summer party - Sidcup Fringe Festival 2018 - is back on June 16 - 17, with a fantastic free programme of food, fun and entertainment.

This year’s big Family Fun Day on The Green on the Sunday will offer a brand new feature, a giant outdoor cinema screen showing three classic comedy films for free - Trolls (12pm), Mrs Doubtfire (3.30) and Back to the Future (6.30pm).

You can book deckchairs in advance - £5 for adults and £3 for children - to view the movies in comfort, but if you bring Dad along on Father’s Day, he’ll get a deckchair for free.

It’s a great way to get the family together to enjoy a picnic and a classic comedy film.

There will also be food, drink and community stalls, as well as stilt walkers and face-painters for the kids.

Dominic Price, headmaster of Merton Court Prep School, the headline sponsor of the 2018 Sidcup Fringe Festival, said he was delighted that families could enjoy such a great event.

He said: “Merton Court has always been a strong supporter of Sidcup and the local community and we are delighted to support this year’s Sidcup Festival Fringe.

“The outdoor cinema on Sunday is a great new addition to the weekend programme, and it’s lovely that families will be able to come along, have a picnic and watch a film together.”

Sidcup Partners – the local Business Improvement District - hope it will be a fantastic weekend for the whole community.
