Things I’m Looking Forward To

Summer is coming and it’s definitely one of my favourite seasons. The sun is shining, the trees are blossoming and I can finally bust out those pretty summer clothes.

Whilst we still are in Spring, it has given me a taste of the weather in summer and it’s making me really excited. So, here’s a list of things I’m looking forward to this summer ๐Ÿ™‚

The Outdoor Cinema

Although dates and venues have yet to be revealed, I’m really excited about the Outdoor Cinema. I remember the first time I went to an outdoor cinema – it rained and it was cold, but it was amazing because you can’t really complain when you get to watch Mean Girls. The number of times you can watch Mean Girls = the limit does not exist.

You can only pre-register at the moment, but once you do, you’ll be the first to know about tickets, films and other info.

Rooftop Film Club

Things I'm Looking Forward To | Rooftop Film ClubIt’s back! This was actually the first outdoor cinema I went to, and as I mentioned it was amazing. They have four venues in Peckham, Shoreditch, Stratford and Kensington. I’ve only been to the one in Peckham because it’s the closest, but I would love to go to the other ones.

Tickets are only ยฃ14 and they even give you a blanket when you get there. The one in Peckham boasts a bar serving unique film themed cocktails and there’s also yummy popcorn and sweet treats to indulge in.

– 2 FREE Rooftop Film Club tickets*

Like I said, awesome.

East Dulwich Picture House

This is something people who live in Dulwich, and the surrounding areas, have been waiting for since December. And now it’s finally open! I managed to take a peek on its opening day, although I have yet to watch a film in there. 

The building it resides in used to be a old church hall and is actually the place where I had my 18th birthday party. So, to see it transformed into a cinema is amazing! It is completely different and what they’ve managed to do with it makes me so excited to see what it’s like to watch a film inside. 

Picture House also have a membership offer, which includes: free film tickets, up to ยฃ2 discount on tickets for a year, 10% off the Memberโ€™s food and drinks and much more.

Foodies Festival – Clapham Common

As a lover of foo, this festival is understandably something I’m looking forward to. Now in its third consecutive year, I still haven’t had a chance to go. This year, however, I will definitely find myself there. 

I’m very excited for their new Tasting Theatre which introduces festival-goers to the latest foods and flavours including Raw Food, Japanese Soul and Vegan. Also, as a big fan of spicy food, I’m equally excited for the Chilli Food Market. Apparently there will be a Chilli Eating Challenge – who knows if I will enter, though? ๐Ÿ˜›


As some of you who check into my blog on a regular basis know, I’m off to New York soon! Excitement aside, I know that this is just the start of the holidays I want to take this year. I’m still hoping to go to Barcelona as a birthday celebration with Mutay in September, and of course, there are plenty other places I would love to visit as documented here.

I just know that most of my money will be going toward experiencing new cultures ๐Ÿ™‚

    All of that looks like so much fun! We’re moving in a few weeks and I can’t wait to explore new events and happenings in our area. I guess a picture house is kind of like a small movie theater?

    All of that sounds like a lot of fun! The Rooftop Film Club sounds like a really great deal. I love food too and would definitely be excited about a food festival. There are several here, and I still have yet to go to one. One of these days I’ll fit it into my schedule!

    Have fun in New York! I used to live there and still love visiting it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope you’re ready for an adventureful summer! It sounds like you have some pretty interesting things listed up! Is outdoor cinema really what the name says? You sit at a table, eat dinner, and a movie is projected to some big screen outside? XD. It sounds like the film club is perfect for you :D. Make sure you take advantage of all of those perks :D. And foodies festival will be perfect for you!!! Hope you’re enjoying New York!!
