Cinema Screening cancelled!

In a previous posting on our website, we explained the Friends' opposition to the planned cinema screenings in the Park. We have now heard the good news that the screenings have been cancelled. The official reason is poor advanced booking levels.

However, we also received an e-mail from Nomad Cinema, the organisers, which said “As you are aware we have significantly adjusted our operational plans in the light of input from relevant parties, in particular the Friends of Richmond Park, however we are always sensitive to the views of those near our screening venues and to the local environment; therefore we felt we had no option but to cancel these events.”

This suggests that the opposition, not just from the Friends but from the Richmond Park Wildlife Group and many others, has had an effect. We want to thank all of you who expressed your opposition though letters and e-mails to Nomad, TRP, MPs and DCMS.
