Cotteridge park in Birmingham is getting a new neighbour this summer! Though the temperature might be cooling down in September Friends of Cotteridge Park have the perfect heartwarming film for any weather with their open-air screening of family classic My Neighbour Totoro from Studio Ghibli legend Hayao Miyazaki. The screening takes place on Saturday 21 September and will be accompanied by a hand-made ‘Guide to Ghibli’, as well as hot drinks and cinema snacks to set the mood.

The Friends of Cotteridge Park was set up in 1997 to provide services and activities that meet the needs of the local community, trustee Emma Woolf has always had aspirations to put on a film night in the park and knew it would be a hit with locals. “Over 800 tickets have been booked already, it’s set to be a sell out!

The event will mark the first ever open-air film screening in the park, which is being supported by Film Hub Midlands as part of our Strategic Interventions strand.
