Wood Street Fiesta outdoor cinema audience

Wood Street Cinema

Commissioned by London Borough of Waltham Forest (supported by the Outer London Fund), 2012

For one evening Wood Street Plaza was transformed into an outdoor cinema complete with a red carpet, comfy seating, popcorn machine and roller skating usherettes. We worked with local businesses to design and produce a family friendly event attended by more than 150 people, with the aim of inspiring the local community to find new uses for the recently redeveloped plaza.

The events put on over the August Bank Holiday were so well received by the local community that they want events every week!  Hunt & Gather provided a colourful, imaginative event on the Saturday, and a classic/ stylish film screening on the Friday night that will hopefully help the community be more adventurous in terms of the events they put on in the future.  Thank you Hunt and Gather.
