Secret Cinema Does Moulin Rouge

An immersive cinema experience to rival all others, Secret Cinema is back and this time, they will be transporting us to early 20th century Paris and the Moulin Rouge. Opening on Valentine’s Day, this cinematic extravaganza will be filled with dancing, lights and music as Baz Lurhmann’s magnificent creation is brought to life by actors (and you, the audience!). Please note that Secret Cinema events sell out very quickly, so book now to avoid missing out.

The London Marathon

You will never experience an atmosphere quite like it, so head into Central London on 23rd April to cheer on the runners as they battle against the odds for their chosen charity. With our fingers crossed for fine weather, we will be there waving our banners high above the crowds for all to see.

Notting Hill Carnival

The biggest street party this side of Brazil happens every August bank holiday weekend and is one event that is not to be missed. Marking the end of the summer, Notting Hill Carnival is a staple in every Londoner’s calendar. Think bright colours, loud sound systems and lots of good food – it’s easy to forget where you are when West London comes to life for one weekend only.
