07/02/2018 - Cast your vote and choose your St George's Day evening film
As part of this year’s St George’s Day Best of British celebrations, we're inviting you to choose the film you want to watch on the evening of Saturday 21 April.
Evening entertainment will kick off at 6.30pm with Oasis tribute band Definitely Could Be, followed by the public’s choice from the five films.
The film will be shown on a large LED screen in the square with seating and food vendors serving fish and chips and sausage and mash.
As the evening film will be potentially rated 12, the evening entertainment won’t be suitable for younger audiences. It’s also the reason we’ve decided not to offer any film options that are rated higher than a 12.
Our airport company, London Luton Airport Ltd (LLAL), is generously acting as principal sponsor this year, making St George’s Day 2018 possible. The company, which owns London Luton Airport, is backing the event to acknowledge the support Luton residents and businesses show for their airport.
Councllor James Taylor, Vice Chair of LLAL, said "St George’s Day is always a great day out for families, and this year we have the added bonus of additional evening entertainment for an older audience celebrating England's cultural heritage.
"LLAL is delighted to be part of this and to be able to provide funding for a variety of vital community events. We hope that everyone has a wonderful time.”
Our St George’s Day celebrations are part of the Luton 2018-19 Commemorations, taking place until July 2019. To find out more about St George’s Day and other activities in the programme, visit www.luton.gov.uk/lutoncommemorations.
