It's the second drive-in movie that's been held at the park - the original 'Grease' film was shown a year ago.

Last year's first ever Drive In Movie for Sandwell was a huge success and still gets spoken about now. People came from all over the region to watch from as far away as Oxford and Stoke. This year we have chosen to show Mama Mia! partly as one of the main cast members is Bearwood's very own Julie Walters who has sent her best wishes for the evening.
