GIVEAWAY: Tickets to Pop Up Screens – Summer 2013

I’m excited to announce my very first giveaway! And it’s a pretty good one if I do say so myself. For all fellow film fans I’ve got not one pair but THREE PAIRS of tickets to see a classic film being shown by Pop Up Screens to give away. You might remember that I wrote about alternative cinema experiences a few months ago, but quite surprisingly I hadn’t stumbled across these outdoor film screenings until they got in touch to let me know more about what the summer holds for them and the great line up of films they’re showing.

Throughout the summer Pop Up Screens is showing an impressive 30 classic films at several parks across London, meaning there should be something and somewhere for everyone.  They’ve also got some great food on offer too with Drum & Kernal, Dosa Deli, Van Dough and Phileas Hog. A great film, tasty food and green surroundings instead of your standard sofa, sounds like a great alternative night out to me!


The weather hasn’t been great of late but as the first filming takes place on 12 July and the last on 15 September, there’s plenty of time for summer to show its true face and for outdoor entertainment to be enjoyed. The only problem you’ll have is deciding which film you’re going to see! I’ve rounded up their schedule here, but you can get more information on their website too.

I could easily watch all of them but if I had to narrow down my choices I’d go for…


Anchorman for it’s hilarity, The Goonies for nostalgia, Romeo & Juliet for romance (and the lovely Leo), ET because it’s awesome.

The location may also be a decider too. You’ve got Bishops Park (Fulham), Wormholt Park (Hammersmith), Morden Hall Park (Morden), Manor House Gardens (Lewisham), Ravenscourt Park (Hammersmith), South Park (Parson’s Green) and Coram’s Fields (Holbourn). (I told you they had a few locations!)

If you wanted to secure a ticket rather than take your chances you can get them for just £8 each here. If you want to enter the giveaway read on!


It’s pretty simple, all you need to do is:

1. Leave a comment below telling me what your all-time favourite film is and why.

2. Spread the giveaway joy by sharing the post on Facebook, retweeting the post on Twitter or repinning the above image on Pinterest.

You’ve got until midnight on Sunday 23 June 2013 to enter. I’ll pick three entries at random and announce the winners of each pair of tickets on Monday 24 June.

So what are you waiting for?! Get your entries in!

    The easy answer would be Back to the Future, but when I think back and try to recall memorable experiences of watching a film (what this article is about after all!!), there is one clear winner….

    Going to see Titanic in the winter of 1997 with four male friends. Given we were in our young teenage years at the time, you could almost smell the testosterone coming from our row during ‘certain’ scenes of the movie. Plus, I cried.

    All time favourite film has to be Blues Brothers. Epic in every single way and it would be awesome to see it outside.

    Indiana jones and the temple of doom, because my weekday boyfriend resembles short round!

    Ah, they’re showing so many good ones! I’m big fan of Indiana Jones and Back to the Future – they’re both the kind of films I’d watch with on a Sunday with my dad and my sister while I was growing up, and though I’ve seen them many times, I could watch them over and over and they’re still just as good!
