It’s a life – Wednesday 28th September, 8pm
Sailing Barge “Leonard Piper”” this is a fascinating story of one family’s bohemian life on the River Thames at Chiswick. Whilst we all think we know what it might be like to live on a boat this film tells the story of what it is actually like. Denis Postle will be here in person to introduce his film and his life!
Most of us will have crossed the river Thames and noticed the houseboats and converted barges sitting calmly by the river bank. We probably have been wondering, how they got there and what it is like to live on one. We may even believe that they are only for weekenders. However tonight’s film , “It’s a Life” shows exactly what it was like to live as a family aboard one of these. And if watching the film isn’t enough the head of the family who filmed it will be there to talk about his life and experiences on the river. This is one documentary that really is too good to miss. See you there in the main hall at 8:15 (we have to allow time for the Brownies to finish)”
