Going Green

Bittersweet comedy adventure Up not only received two Academy Awards, but since its release in 2009 has become a firm family favourite and influenced countless animated and live-action productions. 

The screening will be preceded by fun activities including a giant edible mythical maze and storytelling in both Polish and English. 

The event coincides with Love Parks Week, a national campaign which supports the need for quality green spaces and healthy, happy communities. Dr Ellie Francis-Brophy, London Borough of Hounslow, Community Partnerships Unit says:

“Our Park Presents’ aims to provide a new platform for a flagship project, to open up new spaces for engagement, creativity and contribute to supporting a sustainable, independent voluntary and community sector. It is about attracting residents to a film event outdoors and increasing a sense of belonging and interest in community participation.”
