Our project – Movie By The Lawn plans to hold this event at Rippon Lea. As listed from the National Trust Annual Report 2009 -2010, the major events that this venue holds are the annual Teddy Bears event, Easter Egg Hunt, Iavish Devonshire Tea in the Ballroom for Mother’s Day and the Peter Pan production. It is clear that Rippon Lea’s target market is family. However, because it’s target market is too small, that over the years as seen from its financial statements in the past National Trust Annual Reports that it has made losses rather profits.

Movie By The Lawn is an event that allows the whole community to come together to share happiness within a night together. Movie will be played during the event, as it is the key entertainment of the night for all attendees.

Movie By The Lawn will be held at the Rippon Lea Estate Garden. Due to its location, it only manages to attract approximately 2,400 visitors for each event (National Trust of Australia Annual Report 2008 – 09).

For business people would require entertainment that does not last over half a day. This event, Movie By The Lawn, is just perfect for them.
