Stow Film Lounge presents SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS (P. Pearce, L. Morey, W. Cottrell, W. Jackson & B. Sharpsteen, 1937, Cert U)

Our Kids’ Film Lounge screenings return! This time at a new venue in central Walthamstow – Centre17. We are very excited to be re-launching our “organized chaos” in a perfect new space. As a little pre-Christmas treat we thought we would go old skool with a Disney classic which set the benchmark by which all future animations have been judged.

Snow White, pursued by a jealous Queen, hides with the Dwarfs; the Queen soon learns of this and prepares to feed her a poison apple.

The Grimm fairy tale gets a Technicolor treatment in Disney’s first animated feature. Jealous of Snow White’s beauty, the wicked queen orders the murder of her innocent stepdaughter, but later discovers that Snow White is still alive and hiding in a cottage with seven friendly little miners. Disguising herself as a hag, the queen brings a poisoned apple to Snow White, who falls into a death-like sleep that can be broken only by a kiss from the prince.

Doors open 10.30am, Crafts, Film 11am, Close 1pm

Tickets: £5.50 (inc crafts) child, £12 party package (per child), £4 acc adult, under 2s free

Stow Film Lounge presents LONDON SYMPHONY (Alex Barrett, 2017) + Director’s Q&A

We are always on the lookout for new and innovative films to bring you and LONDON SYMPHONY is no exception. A brand new silent film – a city symphony – which offers a poetic journey through the capital. It is an artistic snapshot of London as it stands today, and a celebration of its rich diversity of culture, architecture and religion. It was nominated for the Michael Powell Award for Best British Film at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2017.

In addition to the screening, we are delighted that Alex Barrett, Director, will join us for a post screening Q&A, together with Pam Hutchinson, a freelance journalist who blogs about silent cinema and writes regularly for Sight & Sound and the Guardian.

Doors open 7.15pm, Film 8.00pm, Close 10.30pm

Tickets: £8/£6 conc (ticket only), £13.50 – £16.00 (ticket and pizza/lasagne, pre-book only)

Turkey Tinsel

Social_template_Turkey_T

TURKEY TINSEL tells the tales of those whose lives must not be forgotten, but treasured as gifts – not just for Christmas! 

TURKEY TINSEL invites you to join Gladis, Flora, Norris, Annie, Winnie and Wilfred, Diana and Danny, Keith, Chloe, Catherine and Flo, Sidney and Shirley – and the rest of the crowd you will warmly get to know. 

TURKEY TINSEL celebrates togetherness: inspires us to reflect on the past and encourage us to look to the future optimistically. 

TURKEY TINSEL has been inspired by my Nan’s annual Christmas adventures across the UK, travelling to hotels to relish the magic of a ‘Turkey and Tinsel’ seasonal break. It showcases the amazing times their generation has lived through and the contributions they have made to the world. 

TURKEY TINSEL follows a Nurse on a coach holiday tour to the many hotels that celebrate seasons greetings throughout October, November and December.

Canned Laughter

Social_template_canned2

Six more of the biggest names in comedy come together in Walthamstow to raise food and funds much needed by the local food bank, Eat or Heat. You can reserve yourself a seat here at the Early Bird price of £3 but entry on the night will require more than just your ticket – to get in we ask of you to bring a minimum of five donations to Eat or Heat The Waltham Forest Food Bank. A full list of items needed can be found here http://eatorheat.org/food-donations/


Our Christmas show will feature LAUREN PATTISON (Nominee for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Fringe 17), AHIR SHAH(Nominee for Best Show at the Edinburgh Fringe 17), LOU SANDERS (Russell Howard’s Good News), NICK HELM (Uncle, Loaded, Heavy Entertainment) JAMALI MADDIX (Brexit Stage Left) and will be MCed by KIRI PRITCHARD-MCLEAN (Stand Up Central).


As if it wasn’t enough to come support a brilliant charity and see some excellent comedy… it’s a BYOB night. No £5 pints at this event (no bar at all in fact), so don’t forget to bring a bottle if that takes your fancy! CentrE17 is a 5-minute walk from Walthamstow Central on the Victoria Line and minutes away from the shops in case you need to purchase your five items on the day.

“A night where we try to raise money and food for something that shouldn’t exist… Like a kickstarter for Farage. It’s a line up of excellent idiots who are all delighted to be useful idiots for once. This is a brilliant cause and we promise it will be a brilliant night.” Gabby Best – Previous Canned Laughter MC

“We are really excited to be hosting canned laughter at CentrE17. It’s going to be an amazing night of comedy and community spirit” Max Peters – Artistic Director for CentrE17

Unfinished Things Festival

Social_template_unfinsihed

The Unfinished Things Festival is a cabaret-style event dedicated to the beautifully incomplete, half finished and barely started. Everyone has an unfinished thing. A concept for a story. A doodle for a work of art. A film that hasn’t reached the final edit. A song that needs work on the chords. A fragment of a play. A chunk of poem. A DIY project missing a few screws. A new recipe…Showcasing exciting talent and fresh ideas, from mermaid puppets to musical inventions. This is a unique, fascinating, celebration of the creative mind, with a mix of professional performers and those who have never had a chance to show their ideas before. This is a night that will guarantee thought, entertainment, and laughter. It’s uplifting, productive, anarchic, amazing, and most of all it’s fun!
