If you thought Disney's Frozen couldn't get any more magical, think again.

Chapter Arts Centre and Cadw are collaborating on a programme of cinema screenings in some of Wales' most spectacular castles, including Anna and Kristoff's epic search for Elsa.

The pop-up screenings will take place over two weekends in October and November at Castell Coch and Caerphilly Castle. Aimed primarily at families (although everyone is welcome), those attending will be allowed and encouraged to sing along with the films' famous scores. Hundreds of happy faces singing 'Let It Go' in a majestic Welsh castle... magical! Some of the screenings will have a special pre-film performance by the Welsh National Opera's musicians. It will be the perfect way to warm up your vocal cords and your body (though do wrap up warm just in case it is nippy!) Tickets for all of the screenings can be booked through Chapter Arts Centre
