all familiar with the concept of silent discos where ravers wear wireless headphones, allowing them to get lost in music that no one else can hear. Now we have silent cinemas too! Outdoor screens where film lovers can gather and not be bothered by surrounding noises (and to get around noise pollution rules, probably!).

For two nights only, St Martin’s Courtyard in Covent Garden is being transformed into a full-size outdoor cinema providing entertaining mystery movies alongside delicious food from the restaurants that line the courtyard. The event starts on Wednesday 8th August with a well-loved film set in India with naughty chai (made with whiskey or Baileys) served by Indian cafe Dishoom and further entertainment from a Bollywood dance troupe.

The event concludes on Thursday 9th August with a charming Italian favourite with a taste of Italy provided by Dalla Terra who will be providing Italian cheese and ham. Other nibbles and treats (available on both nights) include Thai calamari from Suda, beers and cocktails from Bill’s Bar and free gourmet popcorn for all.

The event is completely free to attend but with only 100 tickets are available for each showing, you’ll need to be quick and lucky! Tickets can be won from the website with a few kept back for walk-ups on the day. However, the best way to guarantee great seats is by reserving an al fresco table at Suda, Bill’s or Dalla Terra who are all serving special menus for the occasion. The set price dinner includes the headset and some of the best seats in the house!

Wed 8th Aug & Thurs 9th Aug

To win tickets, visit and choose which day you would like to attend. Good luck!
