Valentine’s Day watching Brief Encounter
Which film you do associate with the ultimate story of love and romance? Gone with Wind? Titanic? Forget overblown epic romances, Brief Encounter is a true love story from the 1940s, played by Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard. The story is quietly played out, with lingering looks, repressed desires, and intense love between two people. The music score is beautiful. The screening will be preceded a performance from the Amadeus Orchestra of Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto which features throughout the film. Film and music will be screened at the Cadogan Hall from 6 – 8:30pm, so plenty of time for a glass of champagne and dinner afterwards in Chelsea.
Only available on Saturday 13th February from 6-8:30pm so do visit the Cadogan Hall website to book in advance. Based in Sloane Terrace, SW1X
