Cinema fans can win a pair of tickets to a special screening of feel-good summer hit, Yesterday, on the Salthouse Fields.

Curzon and Sunset Cinema have teamed up to put on an outdoor showing of the film to raise money for the cinema's leaky roof.

The film, by Academy Award-winning director Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis, stars Himesh Patel as Jack - a struggling musician who realises he is the only person on earth who remembers The Beatles.

Jack is a singer-songer writer in a tiny English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his best friend, Ellie (Lily James).

After a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover The Beatles have never existed.

He reconstructs their songs from memory and passes them off as his own, winning fame and fortune, but can he live with the lie?

The film is showing on the Salthouse Fields on September 6, and doors open at 7pm with a start time of 8pm.

Guests are advised to check the weather forecast beforehand and dress appropriately - the screening will go ahead if it rains and will only be cancelled in the case of extreme weather.

People can take along their own seats and picnic blankets, but glass bottles are not allowed.

A bar will serve beer and wine and Hector the coffee truck will serve hot drinks and fish and chips.

Tickets, priced £12, are available at
