Playground Opens for Fun & Frolics!

Our fantastic newly refurbished playground re-opened with fanfare this morning as the sun put in an appearance boding well for a summer of fun.

Our younger visitors were treated to some yummy treats and bobbing balloons as they discovered the adventures to be found within, whilst Evan Harries from Portsmouth – as the first to arrive – was invited to cut the ribbon and received a bumper jar of sweets as a surprise!

Inside Out at the Odeon


Don’t miss out on Pixar’s fantastic new animation movie, showing throughout the school holidays.

The film will show you the human mind ‘Inside Out’, going into the head of Riley where we meet her emotions: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust.

After Riley has to move to a new school, Joy and Sadness accidentally go missing in the depths of her mind. Now that Riley’s only guided by Anger, Fear and Disgust, Joy and Sadness must journey through her long-term memory, imagination and dreams to try and get everything back to normal.

One Odeon viewer recently raved about the film, “Inside Out was absolutely amazing. Loved every minute of it!”

From the creators of ‘Monsters, Inc.’ and ‘Up’, ‘Inside Out’ reveals a place we all know well, but none of us have ever seen – the human mind.
