CAMPBELL Park has been quite the busy little place over the ‘summer’ hasn’t it?

The green expanse has another busy weekend coming up too – The Open-air Film Festival returns.

First up tomorrow night are two drive-in movies – Cars and the Italian Job.

You pay a tenner per car, per film for the ticketed big screen action.

The movies continue to fly across Saturday oand Sunday too, with six freebies – but don’t take the car along to these: The Incredibles, The Goonies, Indiana Jones – Raiders of the Lost Ark, Wallace and Gromit’s Curse of the Weir Rabbit, Mary Poppins and The King’s Speech.

Pack up some nibbles, remember the blankets or seating and don’t sit nattering on your mobile!

> On Tuesday, The Parks Trust hosts a Circus Skills event. Participants will watch a display before joining in with the fun.

Pre-booking is essential for this one, on MK 255379.

> It’s Classic Car Show time this Sunday over at the Hounslow Hall Estate in Newton Longville.

It’s an enthusiast’s dream: American cars, performance brrroom-brrooms, classic motors, motorcycles, trucks and whatever else organisers can find that fits the billing.

The event will also be hosting a special Suzuki assembly – and there will be a few famous examples on display too.

Stunt bikes, drag cars and the Dakota Thunder Jet Truck will all be wheely pleased to see you, and a trade village and 4x4 driving tasters will be up and running.

Entering your motor costs £6 in advance, £10 on the day, and visitors get in for nowt, which means that you can afford to shake some silver and gold into the charity buckets that will be doing the rounds.

> Woburn Abbey (aside from hosting theatre in its Gardens this weekend) will welcome the return of its popular Garden Show on Saturday and Sunday.

The event, in partnership with Frosts Garden Centre features a wealth of celebrity gardeners, and boutique stalls and demonstrations will be on the agenda. All those exhibiting have been personally chosen by the Duchess, and Frosts.

Admission is £8.95 for adults, £4 for kids and that price includes access to the stunning Hornbeam maze, entry to the gardens and the continuing sculpture exhibition, and free guided tours.
