“Alongside a fantastic line-up of movies, you’ll be able to book exclusive stand-up sessions from Mark Watson’s Carpool Comedy Club across the tour in all locations.

“With personal speaker systems provided for each car and food served straight to your parking bay, you simply need to pull up, sit back and enjoy the show on the world’s largest mobile HD LED screen.”

Tom Kerridge said: “I am so excited to announce a great new event created to have a load of fun in a way that is safely suited to current times. Come and eat some good grub, catch some quality movies, and make some new memories with your loved ones. It’s the perfect trip out of the house!”
