in Chiswick wedding drama
church stars in BBC's Jeffrey Archer drama previewed at next weekend's Bedford
Park Film Festival
residents have another chance to enjoy one of the highlights of this year's Bedford
Park Festival - the Bedford Park Film Festival - later this week! The evening
of local film clips - professional and amateur - was packed out in June and is
being repeated by popular demand on Saturday November 30th, starting at 8pm.
there's an extra surprise - a preview of extracts from 'Jeffrey Archer - The Truth'
which will be shown the following night on BBC1. Parts of the satirical drama
were filmed in Bedford Park - and the wedding of Jeffrey and Mary Archer was shot
in St Michael & All Angels Church (see picture).
Other films to be featured during the evening include 'Nuns on the Run', which
was shot in and around St Michael's (to the benefit of the church coffers); ITV's
'Plain Jane', about the early days of Bedford Park, which was screened earlier
this year; and several amateur films, including the 1975 film marking Bedford
Park's centenary. A recently discovered film of the 1969 "Green Days"
fete will also be shown, as well as extracts from the video celebrating the wedding
of the vicar of St Michael's, Father Kevin Morris, to Miriam Solly.
for the evening cost £12 for adults and £8 for under-16s, including
traditional cinema food. They can be booked in advance by e-mailing the Parish
