Free Film in Brockwell Park – Saturday 31st May 2014

herne-hill-fff-2014-posterMADD for Brockwell Park and Herne Hill Free Film Festival have joined forces for the second successive year to bring you a FREE OUTDOOR FILM.

The cult classic Labyrinth, starring David Bowie, (Certificate U) will be screened on Saturday 31st May by the grass area opposite Brockwell Park’s Temple building / Walled Garden. The event is free and no tickets are required. 

You are encouraged to arrive from 8.30pm. The film will be screened as soon as it gets dark, which will be around 9.10pm, and lasts for approximately an hour and a half. 

There will be no lights on in the park, so please bring a working torch and also something comfortable to sit on. Stewards and lanterns will guide you out of the Park down the Herne Hill path at the end of the film. There will also be a collection of donations by registered charity, Brockwell Park Community Partners, who organise the annual MADD for Brockwell Park Programme.

Last year’s free film ‘Spirited Away’ was a resounding success, attracting around 400 – 500 people (photo below).

Free film event – volunteer marshals required

VolunteerWe are pleased to announce a full length evening screening of ‘Spirited Away’, by Japanese animators Studio Ghibli, as part of the Herne Hill Free Film Festival (HHFFF) 2013 Programme.

The screening is scheduled to take place on the evening of Saturday 18th May 2013 at the Park’s Performance Space. This is a ‘dark’ event, so Lambeth has stipulated that volunteer marshals are required to light – with torches – the paths that film goers will take by the Performance Space, Brockwell Hall and the path down to Herne Hill gate.

A high visibility jacket will be provided. The film is expected to finish around 11pm. If you would like to volunteer as a marshal for the film event, and have a torch, please contact the HHFFF co-ordinator, Charlotte Ashworth by email:
