Continuing with their record of films in interesting places, the night takes place in the excellently atmospheric surroundings of The Nave — the lovely old deconsecrated church in Islington — which should be looking even more stunning bedecked in fairy lights and with a real Christmas tree. There’ll be 1940s tunes spinning on the decks, plus mince pies, mulled wine, hot mulled apple and the chance to grab a snog under the mistletoe. And then you get the movie, which is a proper hankyfest.
Tickets are £8 on the door but if you’re around London during Christmas and want to give more than your cash, Crisis need 8,000 volunteers between 23rd-30th December to help provide an estimated 3,000 homeless guests with meals, chat, entertainment and services like hairdressing and health check-ups.
Midsummer Night Screen’s Christmas special starts at 7.30pm on Wednesday 21st December at The Nave, 1 St. Paul’s Rd, Islington. Tickets cost £8 on the door or £6 advance.
