The idea is simple – just getting together a few people interested in seeing plays and other theatrical performances, and independent / interesting films, in Islington and Hackney (and, once in a while, sneaky jaunts further afield). You don’t need to be local – we have people from near and far. For each outing there will be plans to have something to eat or drink beforehand or afterward – you’re welcome to join in. Key places are:
• theatres – the Almeida, the Arcola, Park Theatre, the King's Head, the Hope, the Barbican, the Old Red Lion, the Rosemary Branch, the Pleasance
• cinemas – the Rio, the Barbican, the Hackney Picturehouse, Rich Mix
In terms of how it works, members must book and pay for their own tickets with the theatre/cinema. There are occasional exceptions (sometimes I make a group booking, though only for members who prepay) – but please remember that in order to attend the event you need a confirmation from either me or the theatre/cinema that you have paid for and been allocated your ticket.
There is no requirement to attend any particular number of events with the group – but there is a requirement to turn up if you RSVP. So in this group, please don’t RSVP unless you have bought your ticket (or are in the process of buying one via me) and will definitely be coming.
