Vauxhall Film Festival
South London does a good job of providing fun, friend gathering activities - first up is the Vauxhall Film Festival. The Pleasure Gardens have been showing a film every Tuesday. I met my friends, grabbed a picnic and settled down to watch Alan Partridge broadcast his way hilariously through 'Alpha Papa'.
We opted for a picnic but there were food vans ready and waiting for the hungry customers to descend, booze sellers and lovely people walking around selling popcorn 'the film lovers favourite'. We arrived at 7 and the film started as the sun began to set around 9.
There are three more weeks to go showing 'Slumdog Millionaire', 'This is the Spinal Tap' and 'The Big Lebowski'. I can't miss rocking up to Vauxhall in my dressing gown to cosy down for a night with the dude. One thing we didn't necessarily anticipate was how quickly the night drags the cold with it. Next time I will stock up on blankets, although we did all manage to transform into one organism to share heat which was cosy.
