A series of free events will be taking place on a floating cinema which will be moored at Brentford Lock between Thursday 4 to Saturday 6 June.

This year’s Looping the Locks series of events sees the Floating Cinema start its journey across the waterways of south east and west of England from Brentford to Bristol – and back again when it returns in August. The local leg of the journey is sponsored by Hounslow Council.

All events are free but must be booked in advance online.
