Agatha Christie Weekender

Not quite the same as a music event, but an event nonetheless – and if you like playing Cluedo in your spare time this could be the thing for you.

This weekend sees the British Film Institute host a weekend dedicated to the work of Agatha Christie.

You’ll have a chance to see screenings and onstage activity, and a carriage from the Orient Express will be stationed outside the Royal Festival Hall for you to have a gander.

Tickets for the screenings are available here, but be quick – there are only a few seats left for tomorrow’s activities.

Nearest Tube: Waterloo/Embankment/Charing Cross

Lesbian and Gay Film Festival

As mentioned a few weeks ago on the radio show, London’s Lesbian and Gay Film Festival is now running at the British Film Institute.

The event opened on Wednesday, March 17 and is running until March 31.

There are a whole range of events, as well as films, on offer – including a Dusty Disco in honour of Ms. Springfield herself, talks and club nights.

Tickets are still available for some of the films – check the website for availability.

The British Film Institute is situated on London’s South Bank.

BFI’s Out At The Pictures

The British Film Institute screens LGBT films every month, and this month is no exception.

Billed as films ‘that might not otherwise find a place outside the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival’, the movies are a mix of old and new.

This week why not try out The Haunting, an adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s ‘The Haunting of Hill House’.  It’s showing on Sunday, December 13 and costs £9 for adults and £6.50 for students and the unwaged.

If you can’t make it this week, another film that’s coming up over the next few weeks is Can’t Stop The Music, which is a film starring The Village People.  Worth a watch just for the anthems ‘YMCA’ and ‘In The Navy’….

Can’t Stop The Music is showing on December 17 and 19.  Check out the website for more details, and films that are coming up in January.

Stuff you should know: The BFI is situated on London’s Southbank.  Nearest tube is Waterloo.
