West Norwood's 1st Birthday

Celebrate with us!

Samantha Buttigieg

13 Nov 19

It's been quite a year for West Norwood Picturehouse. From working with the volunteer-powered monthly street market festival FEAST, to having 3 simultaneous sold-out screenings of NT Live's Fleabag, and the recent exciting news of being nominated for Cinema of the Year 2019 for this year's Screen Awards which takes place later this month - fingers crossed for West Norwood who are doing us proud. They're certainly not a cookie-cutter cinema and after only a year they're already established at the heart of the local community, which is what Picturehouse is all about.

Now, on to the good stuff! Help us celebrate as West Norwood turns 1 on Saturday 16 November, when tickets will be £5 all day, and better yet if you're a member it's just £3. You'll be able to watch both new releases and join in an array of family events - there'll be fun for all the family.

Meet The Author: Flynn's Window + Book Reading

Sat 16 Nov, 10.15-10.45, Ages 3-7.

We're delighted to welcome South London based author Yeliz Hakki for an interactive reading of her book Flynn's Window, which takes us into the imagination of Flynn the cat and what he sees as he looks out of his window every day...

Yeliz will give a reading of her book, with the pages projected onto the big screen so you can follow the story with her and immerse yourself in the illustrations. She will then give a talk about what inspired the book, how she got into writing and illustrating. She'll also be able to give top tips to any inspiring young writers and answer any questions from the audience.

Tickets are just £5 and every attendee will get a signed copy of the book (RRP £7.99) included in their ticket price. The recommended age range for this event is 3-7 years.

The event will follow activities to create your own Flynn-inspired artwork (or take an activity sheet away with you to do at home).


After which, the day will continue as follows:

11.00-12.25     Kids' Club: My Neighbour Totoro
11.00-12.40     Kids' Club: Playmobil: The Movie - this screening will be Subtitled (Captioned)
11.30-15.30     Badge Making
11.30-15.30     Kids Activity Sheet
12.15-13.30     Window Scene Workshop
12.30-15.30     Face Painting & Glitter Tattoos
18.00-22.00     DJ Set

There'll be prizes, surprises, live music and delicious food and drink promotions. Are you game?
