Grosvenor Britain & Ireland announces the return of the ever popular Grosvenor Film Festival. The festival is presented by The Nomad Cinema in association with Chestertons and airs in select locations across Mayfair and Belgravia from June to September.
The films will be silent, with audio provided by state-of-the-art headsets. This year's iconic movies include The Notebook, E.T. and A Streetcar Named Desire. Screenings will be held in some of central London’s most beautiful open spaces, including Grosvenor Square, Brown Hart Gardens, Belgrave Square Gardens and Wilton Crescent Gardens. For the first time ever St Mark’s, a grade-I listed building on North Audley Street, Mayfair, will also host screenings during the Grosvenor Film Festival.
Tickets to all Grosvenor Film Festival screenings are available for purchase through the Grosvenor London website (www.grosvenorlondon.com) and the Nomad website (www.whereisthenomad.com)
Will Bax, Director, Placemaking, London estate at Grosvenor Britain & Ireland said: “The Grosvenor Film Festival brings some of the flavour of Cannes to Mayfair and Belgravia. Whether you live, work or are visiting London, come and enjoy the fun in some of London’s finest garden squares.”
Robert Bartlett, Chief Executive of Chestertons said: “Chestertons is very active in Belgravia and Mayfair, and we’re always looking for ways to add value for our clients and offer fun activities and events in the communities where we are based. We supported the first ever Grosvenor Film Festival back in 2014, and again last summer, so it’s a real pleasure to continue the association; hopefully with extra screenings, this year’s line-up of films will be the best yet. We look forward to meeting cinema-goers at all the screenings, and fingers crossed the trademark Chestertons rain ponchos aren’t required too often, if at all!”
The charming locations offer the ideal backdrop for Londoners to gather for a summer evening, complete with gourmet picnics and delicious refreshments which will be provided by leading caterers including Madame Gautier and The Garden Café.
