The opening event with film screenings commenced at 1 pm, then throughout the day with three screening sessions and finishing around 11 pm with an incredible line up of film directors, producers, production crew, actors, singers and celebrities including Leee John, Peter Straker, Stephanie Beacham, Omar, Jay Kamiraz/Mr Fabulous, Kym Mazelle, Mark Franks, Jack Warner, Cathy Tyson, Mark Almond amongst the guests.
“What an incredible turnout; we are absolutely delighted with the feedback to the opening event of the very first the London Creative Showcase 2021 and truly grateful working with such an incredible hub of creative talent who, without all their gracious hard work, time, and support this would not have happened. Looking ahead, we aim to continue with The London Creative Showcase as an annual event providing a unique platform for creative artists and emerging talents, especially from those areas of the community that are underrepresented and who find it challenging to break down barriers”, says Chris Smith the event organiser and Joint Branch Secretary in Westminster UNISON
The London Creative Showcase 2021 presented by Westminster UNISON is to attract its members and the communities back into the West End of London, helping to provide a jump-start to the local economy, creating jobs and giving a voice through this showcase, highlighting the programme on diversity, equality and inclusion across all areas.
