Independent cinema Pop Up Screens is back this winter, taking over Peckham’s popular Bussey Building with a season of exciting and immersive events.
In-between themed cinema screenings (Forbidden Forest Cinema and Cinema in the Snow), Pop Up Screens will be trying its hand at comedy for the first time, launching the Peckham Comedy Festival.
Taking place from 12 to 15 November, the ‘festival’ will see renowned comedians such as Sara Pascoe, Dane Baptiste, Ed Gamble, Rosie Jones, Jade Adams, Lloyd Griffith, Kae Kurd, Simon Brodkin, Phil Wang and Lou Sanders all take to the stage in the indoor cinema’s comfy woodland setting.
“Comedy, like cinema and so many other industries has taken a big hit in 2020. We wanted to launch something that not only supports the arts but also creates some fun for our visitors,” notes David Leydon, Owner, Pop Up Screens.
“We had the venue space in-between screenings so thought, why not give it a go? Peckham is such a vibrant and creative community, too. As an independent business we feel very at home there”.
