It’s a British summer so who can tell whether we’ll need to trundle along with a brolly and a jumper or, we should be packing Alex from Glasto bucket hats.
However, as of now it’s looking really good with some serious scorchers ahead of us. London’s spoilt for choice this year with a ton of classics being shown across the capital so take your pick.
Don’t put baby in the corner! King’s Cross Summer Love Film Festival is screening a host of films on the canalside steps at Granary Square. From Dirty Dancing to Ghostbusters to Notting Hill to La La Land.
Book for FREE tickets or try for a walk-in on the day. Screenings aren’t ticketed so if you get there early, there’s every chance you’ll get in.
