OK, not quite Herne Hill, but near enough and worth knowing about for a unique link! The Bigger Picture is a new film club based in E. Dulwich. TBP next screens 'Angels & Insects' (1995) on Thurs 9 Aug @ Upstairs at East Dulwich Tavern, 1 Lordship Lane. The film stars Mark Rylance and Kristin Scott Thomas. But unique is a topical tie-in with the Dulwich Picture Gallery - Philip Haas, the director of 'Angels & Insects' has created a brilliant set of four monumental fibreglass sculptures for his 'The Four Seasons' installation in the gallery's gardens! The first ever public display of all four works following their completion! Each sculpture is 15-foot-high, inspired by Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s Renaissance paintings of the four seasons, comprising Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
The 'Breakfast Run of Hope' happening in Brockwell Park in September was 'cooked up' by Catherine Weight, a South African living in London who combines her twin passions - baking and running - for an event that's "appealing and fun while raising money for a great cause". Catherine began by baking for friends' birthdays and other special occasions in return for donations to Starfish. Then, wanting to reach out to a larger group of donors than expat South African friends, she went on to organise a half-marathon and raise money for a place in the London Marathon for Starfish.
The Starfish Breakfast Run 2012 hopes to raise around £10,000 for children in South Africa.
