"Everyone is here!" exclaimed the Flower Lady when we had a quick word. And so it seemed ... the concourse was packed! The weather obliged and Neil Brand played his socks off for the 8:30 pm screening of Buster Keaton's 1926 late silent classic THE GENERAL. Later on today the celebrations continue with a bandstand (11am - 3pm) and the official opening of the Sunday market.
You can see a clip of Neil Brand talking about silent film in the square from an outside post on the Herne Hill Forum's Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Herne-Hill-Forum/455633790432
