    Already looking forward to the Fayre. Lot's of local products and BBQ from the Mizens? Winning combination in my book.

    View attachment 911 View attachment 912 Wow the first weekend of Hither Green Week was fantastic! We've got two very different film events happening.
    Please note that there are two venues!

    Pie and Mash Films are a local film company known for their collection of gritty thought provoking British independent films and cutting edge documentaries.
    We will be showing the award winning “Lunatic – Gangster Without a Gun” (awarded ‘Best International Feature’ at the New York International Film & Video Festival awards 25 June 2008.)
    “Bill and Perry are a pair of entrepreneur chancers. The duo make a living out of a scam that allows them to collect rent from ex-council properties. But things aren’t as rosy as they seem and with an impending full moon, Bill and Perry are about to find out that anything can happen.”
    Director (and Hither Green resident) Bill Maloney will be on hand to talk about Pie and Mash Films, his latest documentary investigations and what it takes to run for mayor of London.
    Tickets (£3) are available from Cafe of Good Hope on Hither Green Lane and on the door at 7.30pm, The Station Hotel Pub, 14 Staplehurst Road, Hither Green, London, SE13 5NB on Friday 25th May. Over 18s only.

    Olympic fever starts early in Hither Green with the showing of the 1980s animated film Animalympics.
    If you haven’t seen this one yet, you’ve got to. If you love movies about animation, animals and/or sports, “Animalympics” is the perfect movie for you!
    Featuring the voice talents of Billy Crystal and Gilda Radner, the writing and directorial talents of Steven Lisberger (of “TRON” fame), plus an awesome soundtrack by 10CC’s Graham Gouldman, “Animalympics” is a wonderful film that can be enjoyed by anyone, no matter how young or old.
    Tickets (50p for kids of all ages) from the Cafe of Good Hope or on the door at St Swithuns Hall off Hither Green Lane & Ennersdale Road, on Saturday 27th May 1pm.
