Cars Drive-in cinema event saved after organisers arrange portable toilets
Former pub transformed into the ultimate party house with games room, cinema and football pitch in the garden
From pub to party pad
A drive-in cinema on the English-Welsh border will be able to show its planned Halloween movie after it installed temporary toilets.
Officials at Chester FC wanted to screen a number of movies over the half term but were thwarted by the Welsh lockdown rules - as the club's toilet facilities are over the border in Wales.
To circumvent the problem, the club has hired in a number of temporary toilets so cinema goers have facilities to use if they require them during the movie.
In a statement, organisers said: 'Thank you so much for the support (and puns) over the last few days as we have tackled one of the more strange and surprising problems of lockdown - toilet-gate.
