Night at the movies

Get your popcorn at the ready, for magic of the big screen is coming to Derian!

As part of Derian’s Fit for the Future refurbishment project, a brand new state-of-the-art accessible cinema will be built at the hospice.

Derian families will be able to enjoy family film nights and see the latest blockbusters, all without leaving the building.

The cinema room, which will be based in The Lodge, has been donated by Together for Cinema.

Founded by Ian Morrish in 2009, the charity aims to donate and install 25 cinema rooms in children’s hospices across the UK by 2020. Derian is number 22 on the list!

The cinema is part of Derian’s 25th anniversary Fit for the Future project.

Starting in January 2019, the exciting scheme will see walls knocked down to create bigger, brighter open plan spaces and better bedrooms.

The house will be split into zones for eating, sleeping and relaxing. Corridors will be themed and The Lodge will be given a cool new look.

There will be more places for people to sit, relax and reflect and a new modern colour scheme.
