Upcoming Events


Tuesday 8th September, Rye Books Outdoor Cinema
presents 'The Chain'
Doors open 7.30pm, Film Starts 8pm / ends 9.40pm

Director Jack Gold, 1984, Uk, Cert PG, 100 mins

As part of this year’s Peckham & Nunhead Free Film Festival Rye Books will be screening ‘The Chain’ written by Jack Rosenthal, this British comedy which takes a sideways look at the potential minefield of moving house. Warren Mitchell plays Bamber, removals expert and philosopher extraordinaire, who in a fit of optimism schedules his removal men to undertake seven different moves in one day - all of them interconnected. Each person has their own particular reason for moving and each reason has a curious affiliation to one of the seven deadly sins.

This is an outdoor event so we thought it’s only fair to serve up the first of the seasons mulled cider! If on the night the weather is set to be chilly please bring a blanket to sit on and wear warm clothes. Coffee, tea and cake on sale. Free event. No booking needed.
