South Bank Spring Film

April 18th, 2017 | by Jennifer Edwards

South Bank Spring Film

There’s no denying it, spring has most definitely sprung. There are oddly blue skies above the capital, sunglasses adorn the face of Londoners far and wide and the smell of barbeques lingers in the air. However, we all know that the British weather is an unpredictable beast and if we’re sure of anything it is that there will be rain on the way at some point. Fortunately, the South Bank has a spring smorgasbord of film choices to keep you entertained whether you’re dodging the clouds or the crowds.
