NICK’S NEXT BBC RADIO LONDON GUEST APPEARANCE
Our next screening at Mirth, Marvel & Maud (former Granada cinema) at 186 Hoe St, Walthamstow E17 4QH on Saturday 18th May is QUADROPHENIA (Franc Roddam, 1979, Cert 18). Come along and celebrate the 40th anniversary of this iconic teen film and also the gig that The Who played at this iconic venue. This screening is part of an evening of celebrations.
Our screenings at the Wild Card Brewery (Ravenswood site) continue on Thursday 23rd May with FREE SOLO (J. Chinn & E.C. Vasarhelyi, 2018, Cert 12A). A quite breathtaking documentary providing a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of free soloist climber Alex Honnold as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock – the 3,200 foot El Capitan in Yosemite National Park … without a rope.
Following another sold out screening of our first feature THE TRICYCLE THIEF (Marcus Shepherd, 2018) at Gnome House recently, we will be screening it in a local school for pupils and their families to enjoy. We are planning more screenings so do get in touch if you would like to host a screening of this Children’s Film Foundation inspired children’s film in which once again you will witness the power of children’s secret networks to foil the grown ups.
For the Chingford May Day Fayre the London Borough of Culture is looking for cyclists to join Bicycle Ballet (no prior dance experience necessary). If you can ride a bike and signal confidently then join world-class artists and take centre stage at Chingford May Day Fayre! They will train you up to take part in one of two performances which will lead the way between Walthamstow and Chingford on Saturday 4^th May.
This will be a fun event we are sure and you can sign up to take part – here (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdclQNBofc3MpHxFlnncD1VkVopE_PLfKGlKy0VateWgBBYHQ/viewform)
We are absolutely delighted to be working with Wood St Walls to bring you a screening event throughout ART NIGHT, the night of Saturday 22nd June at their studios on Barrett Road, Walthamstow E17 9EX. More details to come next month but rest assured you won’t want to miss this free event.
As part of the London Borough Of Culture celebrations this year, over the last few months we have been working with a number of other Waltham Forest arts organisations and individuals involved in The Barbican-produced LEYTONSTONE LOVES FILM festival taking place on Friday 27th, Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th September. This will see a number of screening events happen across a range of venues and sites in the E11 area. We have some great screenings and events lined up and more details will be released soon so please put it in your diary now!
Nick’s next appearance as a regular guest on David & Carrie’s BBC London 94.9FM Saturday morning breakfast show is on 4th May. He will be on air at 8.45 discussing films and cinema in general. Always a light-hearted, fun and live slot, tune in and you never know you might like it!
