Second Saturday Cinema

Placemaking through film in East London


Second Saturday Cinema is a free family film club in Manor Park East London. We screen animated short films and run art activities based on the second Saturday of each month.

The project is a way to build community connections in Manor Park. The events bring together children and families from all walks of life in the Rabbits Road Institute. It was initially funded by a £250 Get the Party Started grant from Newham Council. I run it with Sophie Rigg as part of Forest Gate Arts.

We run the project with the support of the Rabbits Road Institute – a space for new ways of thinking, creating inspiring activities that are open to all.


The club runs on the second Saturday of the month between- 11-1pm.
