Why Vampires trump the Hunger Games and alternative winter wonderlands
21st November 2014

The big film of the week is the Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1. The book has been split into two parts - which means this film becomes the first in the series not to feature any ‘games’.  Instead, it makes the most of a stellar cast and explores the characters more thoroughly than in previous instalments. 

Sarah explains why her recommendation is vampire mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows, which covers all the usual things men get up to on the weekend - drinking, eating, sucking blood. 

Sarah also explains her top recommendations for good times this Christmas. While she had a lot of fun last year at Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland, for those wanting to avoid the costs and the crowds, she recommends heading to Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens.

They’re hosting their own Christmas park, which features an ice rink, a Christmas tree maze (with a surprise in the middle) and vintage stalls. It’s cheaper, quirkier and is Sarah’s top tip. 

There’s also mention of the Taste of London winter festival but again, Sarah has found an alternative in a Scandanavian Christmas market, which runs between two churches that face off against each other with their Christmas fares.
