The past 12 months have seen countless events cancelled and postponed due to the pandemic.

But this year, a number of open air cinema screenings have been scheduled to take place in some picturesque spots around Wales - coronavirus restrictions permitting, of course.

Among the first cinematic offerings planned is the Street Food Cinema comeback in Cardiff this Easter, which mixes a movie drive-in with the best street food. Read more about it here.
