DESPITE living in London for over a collective eight years, it’s a city that never fails to surprise me.
Ok, so it’s not always in a good way (especially when it comes to the price of a g&t) but more often than not it’s due to the relentless stream of culture that is available on my doorstep.
After living East for years it seems that it’s now the South’s time to shine.
Down by the river in the grounds of Battersea Power Station, a new pop-up outdoor cinema has launched.
On a balmy summer evening, I went along to the launch to try the cocktails (grapefruit Collins – so good!), food from Street Feast and catch a bit of Resevoir Dogs – a film I haven’t watched since I was about 15 (sorry mum, I know I shouldn’t have watched it back then!!).
I’ve only been to one outdoor cinema experience before and, being reckless, took a load of gin but forgot to take a blanket or anything useful – so I was relieved to see an array of bright bean bags and little couches that you can bed down on while watching the film at Everyman Cinema (NB the couches are pretty expensive and the bean bags are very comfy).
The sun setting over the imposing industrial surroundings of the power station was pretty impressive!!
Definitely one to recommend but make sure you take a bit of cash with you – cocktails are a tenner and good is around £7 for a burger/hotdog and a bit extra for chips.
