Short Film Competition

BEAUTY OF BERMONDSEY

Once, not so long ago, our little wedge of London was a scrapbook of slums, rundown factories and destitution.  In fact, Bermondsey has pretty much always been a hotbed of disrepute – home to the most undesirable industries of industrial Britain, with the unfortunate folk to staff them.

Anyhow. Now it’s not. There’s something, however, in the contrast of our neighbourhood’s questionable roots and today’s unrelenting development which makes it so unique.  Ahead of the Bermondsey St Festival on September 20th, we’re asking you to capture what makes it special to you in a short, Instagrammable film for the chance to win an epic, Bermondsey-centric prize.

Hashtag your entry #BeautyOfBermondsey and mention us @TheGarrisonSE1 before Thursday 18th September.  Our expert judging panel including Jose Pizarro, Daniel Pemberton and our own Adam White will decide on a winner to be announced at 4pm on the day of the festival.  Questions / comments / bribes can be directed to us here.

Cinema in London

THE FLOATING CINEMA

The Floating Cinema is one of those slightly ingenious projects supported by every arts, innovation and enterprise agency you can find in London.  Even its newest vessel was the result of an Open Call architecture competition.

For the third summer now, the river-bound cinema has been trawling London’s waterways with a programme of films more multicultural than the capital itself.  It’s like reading a UN manifesto, set on a canal barge.

Runs ’til the end of September – listings, GPS locator and upside down webcam pics here

Secret recipes

HEIRLOOM TOMATO SALAD

4 heirloom tomatoes
1 tbsp goats curd
8 black olives
½ stick of celery
1 tbsp white wine vineagar
Shot of olive oil

Slice the tomatoes. On the bed of your dish add a dollop of goats curd and then lay the tomatoes on top.

Chop the olives, removing the stones, and put them on a baking sheet in a warm oven (100 degrees) to dry out and intensify their flavour. Once finished, crumble olives on top of the tomatoes.

Thinly dice the celery and toss with the olive oil and white wine vinegar to dress the salad, and top the salad with a little rock salt and celery cress or celery leaves.

URBAN FARMING

It’s that time when we take a renewed look at our city gardens, or more likely, complete lack thereof, and daydream about the good life, planting seedlings and a glut of personal homegrown veg in a couple months time.  With allotment waiting lists having gone from so so so long to just plain closed, you’re coming to need to come up with some better ideas.

There’s a proliferation of folk with clever ideas to get growing in one of the world’s biggest cities (almost, we’re up there, more or less).  Here are few spots to check out for some inspiration to get urban farming on your little slice of London (or get guerrilla on someone else’s): Eco-Thriving, GR2Food, and Green Walls.

LETTERS OF LIFE & LOVE

Table Sixteen has been at The Garrison since the beginning.  It has drawers and slowly these drawers started to fill up with little notes, then bigger notes, doodles, confessions, full-blown narratives.  And now, we’re going to start joining them all together to see what story they tell.  Instagram yours:  #table16
