A Pop Up Cinema is a great event for schools. You are already experienced in organising fundraising events and you have a venue; you’re almost there already.
Your school playing field is probably an excellent venue for an outdoor cinema and your hall could be a great indoor cinema.
The school may well have a PRS for music licence. We can help with the film rights licence. So all you would need to arrange with the local council is a Temporary Event Notification (TEN). They are around £30 – £40 and the great thing is the default position is it will be issued unless there is a legitimate objection.
Once you have arranged us to organise the cinema it’s time to maximise opportunites to boost funds. From having a raffle, operating a tuck shop or hiring out chairs. If your event is big enough street vendors will pay for a pitch to attend your event. Not forgetting there is an enormous advertising surface in front of your audiences eyes. You can approach local businsses with an offer theat benefits them in return for their sponsorship. You could even make a VIP package to make the offer more appealing to them, and to make them spend more with you.
