Things To Do

Adventure Films, Campfires, And Marshmallows

If you’re going to watch a life flash before your eyes…

…make sure it’s somebody else’s.

Preferably someone who’s done something truly adventurous. And make sure you do it in an appropriately beautiful forum, too. One like the beautiful Grade-II listed St. Anne’s Church in Limehouse. Which, as it happens, is exactly where the folks at Secret Adventures have chosen to screen their latest lineup of award-winning life-affirming adventure films.

Adventure Films, Campfire & Marshmallows

It’s all going to take place on the 12th of November, and the set-up’s pretty delightful. There’ll be a pop up bar for warming whisky hot toddies (which can be delivered directly to your seat), marshmallows complete with fire pits for toasting, and some delicious food (veggie and vegan options available).

Once you retire inside and find your way to a seat, you’ll sit back and be treated to a trio of bracing ‘short’ films (which have won 20 awards between them). They’re all adventure-themed, and all excellent. They vary in length from 5mins to an hour & a half (not so short after all), and they include:

Mike & Abbie – a ‘mutual rescue film’ about a man who suddenly loses everything, and finds hope in the form of an abandoned kelpie pup.

Chasing Monsters – an electrifying look at the work of Aussie photographer Nick Moir who chases bushfires, tornadoes, and the ferocious supercell storms otherwise known as ‘Monsters on the Plains.’

Maiden – a jaw-dropping, feature-length, BAFTA-winning account of Tracy Edwards’ time skippering the first all-female international crew in the 1989 Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race.

They definitely made waves.


NOTE: Adventure Films, Campfires, And Marshmallows takes place on November 12th 2022. Tickets cost £20, and are available right HERE.
