Last week, Business Improvement District BID for Welwyn Garden City, put on the free cinema for three days.

Hundreds of people took to the green to watch nine films, including family favourites like Moana and classics such as Back to the Future.

The highlight of the week was Friday night when everyone sang along to the tunes of The Greatest Showman.

This year there was a larger, higher resolution screen with improved sound quality provided by local company Vortex Events.
