Wed Nov 13 was the screening party for cast, crew and supporters of the film Taking Over the King’s Land, held at the highly congenial Dalston Social. It started as a “cast and crew” screening party but everybody decided that friends should come too, and then a few strangers popped by for the fun (but in our neighbourhood no-one’s a stranger)
