Unfortunately, the weather forecast for our Outdoor Cinema has today worsened, with heavy rain and wind now at a 100% likelihood for the time of showing.

It is with sadness that we have to announce that the event will now be canceled for tomorrow evening.

Not to dampen spirits and disappoint too much, we will be rescheduling the event for the 20th October; The Show will go on….

All tickets purchased will be valid for the new date, and we look forward to welcoming you again for The Royal Mint Experience’s first Outdoor Cinema event.

If you are unavailable on the 20th October to attend this great event, please call us on 0333 241 2223 (Mon to Fri 9am – 5pm) and we can process the refund.

FRANKENSTEIN - the first two hundred years
Sir Christopher Frayling, award-winning broadcaster, writer, educationalist and cultural historian

With this illustrated lecture prominent cultural figure Sir Christopher Frayling will help us to celebrate the 200th birthday of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Sir Christopher will explore with guests the circumstances which led the then eighteen-year-old Mary Godwin to conceive the story, the novel’s difficult journey into print, and its colourful afterlife on stage, in films, and within everyday culture - to the point where it richly deserves to feature on a national coin.
