If you’re hopelessly devoted to Sandy, Danny and the Grease gang, you might be aware that this year marks the 40th anniversary of the original movie, can you believe it?! The timeless film, with the lovable characters, dream-worthy outfits and catchy as heck songs came out 40 years ago and it’s time to celebrate that, don’t you think? Not many films gain the caliber that Grease did and will hold up as one of the most loved movies of all time. I would definitely pop it in maybe my top 10 favourites and you can bet your bottom dollar that I know every last word to We Go Together (like rama lama lama ka dinga da dinga dong). Here’s some fun as heck things you can do to celebrate the 40th anniversary this year!
Have a movie night with friends!
I find Grease to be a great film to watch with people. Don’t tell me you don’t burst into song?! Arranging a cozy movie night in with friends, snacks, pajamas and have a good old sing-song!
Or just chill and watch the movie alone
If you don’t have the time or aren’t able to plan a night in with friends then don’t miss out, have a self-care evening and watch the film alone with your favourite takeaway and a glass of whatever takes your fancy!
Have a look locally to see if there are any celebratory events going on in your area! Redgrave Theatre which is part of Clifton College is a great example as they’re hosting a fancy dress singalong to celebrate*!
Visit a diner / drive in movie theatre / fairground
The iconic locations in the movie, including the fairground at the end, the diner where Sandy and Danny have their date and the infamous drive in movie theatre scene are all super fun places to visit at the best of times!
Have a pamper night
Frenchy may have been a beauty school drop-out but you don’t have to be! The perfect time to have a pamper night, either with friends, yourself or your Mum is while watching Grease belting along to Look at Me I’m Sandra Dee!
Make Grease themed cupcakes
I think the colour that I would associate with Grease is pink… wouldn’t you? If you’re planning a Grease themed celebration then cupcakes need to be part of the occasion. I made these super pink ones earlier in the year which would work perfectly!
Are you a fan of Grease? Who’s your favourite character? Let me know!
