Take car. Go to mum's. Kill Phil, grab Liz, go to The Crown, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all of this to blow over.

We're celebrating our love for all things Edgar Wright + Simon Pegg by screening each film from the 'Cornetto Trilogy' under the stars on our big screen across 3 nights!

Tickets are free but you must sign up to get your free Cornetto on the night!

Tuesday 30th July SHAUN OF THE DEAD 2004 romantic zombie comedy film (or "rom-zom-com"). Pegg plays Shaun, a man attempting to gain focus in his life as he deals with his girlfriend, his mother and stepfather in the midst of an apocalyptic uprising of zombies.

The trilogy's Cornetto reference begins with a scene in which Shaun buys a cone for his friend Ed (Frost) at his request as Ed wakes up groggy and badly hung over after a night of drinking. Director Edgar Wright has said that he used to use Cornettos as a hangover cure.

Wednesday 31st July HOTT FUZZ The second entry is Hot Fuzz, a 2007 buddy cop comedy. Pegg and Frost play police officers who investigate a series of mysterious deaths in a small English village; Danny Butterman(Frost) grew up there and Nicholas Angel (Pegg) is an outsider. The two officers purchase Cornetto cones at a convenience store at various times, and a scrap of the wrapper falls onto the counter when Angel later makes other purchases at a motorway service station.

Thursday 1st August THE WORLD'S END The third and final installment is The World's End, a 2013 science fiction apocalyptic comedy. The film follows a group of friends, led by Pegg, reattempting an epic pub crawl during an alien occupation of their home town. In the final scene of the film, a Cornetto wrapper blows past in a breeze, briefly catching on a wire fence.

Wright said in an interview for Entertainment Weekly, "We thought it would be a funny idea to do a sci-fi film where even the people who are going to be your saviours are hammered."

1 FREE CORNETTO PER PERSON PER FILM FOR EVERYONE WHO SIGNS UP WHEN THEY BUY THEIR FIRST DRINK!

*Please note this event takes place outside, weather permitting.
