Families can grab a deckchair on Ipswich’s Cornhill to watch a free open-air screenings of major films at the start of the school summer holidays.

The Secret Life of Pets will be shown from 4.30pm on Wednesday, July 24 while Spider-Man Homecoming will be broadcast at 6.30pm at the town centre site.

Popcorn, ice-cream and candy floss will be available to buy, although nearby restaurants and coffee shops will also be open.

It is part of a series of summer events at the Cornhill following its multi-million pound makeover last year.
