“Firefly Events have now run numerous events over the past few years at different
locations across our portfolio of UK hotels. Every event has been a huge success with
great turnout and feedback from guests. This would not have been possible without
the personal attention to detail, great support and knowledge that the Firefly team
bring. It is really appreciated that the team understand how hugely important this
event is for each hotel and their demands for perfection. I admire how they respond so
calmly and efficiently and are able to work with our hotel teams to ensure the events
can be successfully delivered around the other business commitments.”

Andy Townsend, CEO - Legacy Hotels & Resorts, BHM - Owner & Developer, Director

It needs to be dark to show a film!

Even though we use a top of the range projector to
screen our films, it is still essential that it is dark to
get a good picture.

If you are planning an outdoor screening, we would
recommend that you start the film 10 minutes after

Screening copyrighted movies at an open air cinema event
usually requires a Single Title Screening License (STSL).

Which license do you need?

A commercial licence is required if you are selling tickets to the
general public. A non-commercial licence is required if the movie
element of an event is free of charge.

If you are hosting your own private outdoor movie night, you
won't need one.

How much will it cost?

See table below. All prices are excluding VAT.

Note, some films need special permission from the production
studio and some carry a higher % (e.g. Spielberg and Kubrick titles)
so please ensure you have done the research before your start
marketing your event.

How can I arrange the licence?

Filmbank Media will provide the licence but you will have to open
an account with them (£150 deposit). We can apply for the
licence on your behalf if required.
How long does it take?

Indoor licences can come through within 24 hours if the film is
nOt excluded in moratorium. Outdoor applications can take up to
14 days.

Choosing your film

Here are some things to consider:
1. Select your movie for your event. If you can’t decide, we can

help with suggestions for a genre or recommending which
titles attract the biggest audiences.
2. Check if it is available on DVD or Blu-ray.
3. Check that your preferred title it is available to licence at Sometimes it is a good idea to have a
short list.
4. Apply for your film licence as soon as you decide to run an
event. You cannot start promoting your event unless you’ve
got approval from the studio. You can always cancel your
application with no cost if you change your mind.


Public Liability Insurance

We have our own public liability insurance with Hiscox Insurance that
covers us for up to £5,000,000.

Equipment provided

We supply all of the kit required to screen an indoor or outdoor cinema
night. This includes a suitably sized screen, a projector and a sound

If outdoors, we can still show the film in light rain. However, the wind
cannot be above 25 knots or it becomes a health and safety risk. We will
monitor the wind speed at the time of set-up and throughout the

Event and location requirements

We ask that you don’t seat any of the audience closer to the screen than
6m as, just like in a normal cinema, they will be too close.

If outdoor, we base our quotes on a grass set up on the assumption that
we can spike into the ground for the screen guy ropes. If your site is not on
grass, you will need to arrange for weights or two vehicles to help anchor
the screen along with our vehicle.

If outside, the film can start from sunset but the darker it is the better the
quality. If indoors, the room will need to be dark when the film starts.

If there is no mains power to the venue, we can provide a silent generator
that powers all our equipment at an additional cost.


Terms and Conditions of Hire

We would like to advise you of the following "Terms & Conditions of Hire."

by the client is returned to Firefly Events. Once received and accepted the
booking is under contract and subject to the usual deposit required. Firefly
Events will not accept proof of postage as proof of receipt for late

Firefly Events requires a non-refundable deposit for all bookings. Which,
unless otherwise stated amounts to 50% of the total cost identified upon

costs of Firefly Events prior to each event and protects against loss of
income due to cancelled bookings). Final accounts must be settled in
advance, 28 days prior to the proposed event date.

isolation and will allow for later start times due to discrepancies in sunset

convenient to both parties within 6 months. As the final payment is due
four weeks prior to the event, cancellation before this date will mean loss
of your deposit and cancellation after this date will mean full payment
must be paid by the hirer.
All cancellations must be confirmed in writing to the Firefly Events’
Administration Team where final accounts will be calculated. Any costs
incurred for a particular event, that otherwise would not have been
incurred; will be charged to the client in the event of a cancellation unless
