Top Tickets

Get booking today for the last few Floating Cinema Troubled Waters tickets tomorrow ... who can resist a tour of London's watery crimes with added rare archive footage!?

This year's Floating Cinema micro-comedy season also begins this week - we're delighted to welcome back onboard bonkers (in a good way) Holly Burn ... the first of three celebrity comics we've invited to interview an extra-ordinary local celebrity of their choice. Holly is kicking off with Doreen Golding - Bow Bell's very own Pearly Queen - Thursday night at our Mile End Mooring - you'd be mad to miss it ... as the Pearlies would say "One Never Knows" what might happen on a night out with Holly.
