NCS puts on free screening of new Hobbit film for Lincolnshire teens

Lincolnshire’s provider of the government-backed youth initiative National Citizen Service is offering 15 to 17-year-olds the chance of a seat at an exclusive screening of the new Hobbit film.

Local teens, who express interest in NCS, can apply for limited free tickets to the screening on Saturday, December 14, at 11am, at the Odeon in Lincoln.

Tickets are limited and will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once all tickets have been issued, no more will be available.

To get a ticket for the screening of The Hobbit – The Desolation Of Smaug, which is due for UK release on December 13, teenagers and parents need to fill in an expression of interest form on the NCS website.

Phil Everett, Communications Officer for NCS in Lincolnshire, Rutland, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire, also known as NCS EM1, said: “There has been loads of interest about the release of the new Hobbit film, so we thought we’d reward those who’ve shown interest in NCS by staging a private screening just for them.

“Our event will bring those interested in NCS together for the first-time before the first official 2104 programme kicks off during February half-term.

“We still have tickets left, so any teenager that wants to see the new Hobbit film for free, as well as start their journey to the February of a lifetime, should register their interest in NCS.”

The event aims to gather interest around the NCS February half term programme, which includes a five-day stay at PGL Caythorpe, two days working with local businesses and a social action project to give back to the community.

The February NCS programme begins on February 14 and costs £35 to join, food and five nights of accommodation are included.
