Your socially-distanced summer plans are sorted, with a new drive-in experience rolling up to south London this summer.

@TheDriveIn's going to be touring the UK, but bookending its travels with a few days in London on either side — starting off in south from 5-7 July, and finishing up in east London in September.

Films haven't been announced yet but they promise a mix of 80s classics and 21st century blockbusters.

With cars parked 2m apart, the event comes with built-in social distancing. And also in store: roller waiters, American diner-inspired snacks, family-friendly matinees, and support acts including stand-up comedy, bingo, and silent (yet very public) car disco.

Tickets are released on 27 May. Sign up to be the first to find out more here.
