As the official hotel partner of the BFI London Film Festival, we were on the red carpet last night at the Odeon Leicester Square for our annual Gala event. With a host of stars in attendance, including Sigourney Weaver and Lewis MacDougall, the UK premiere of A Monster Calls was screened amidst much excitement and anticipation.

Based on the book by Patrick Ness, the beautifully told story depicts a 12-year old boy who struggles to come to terms with his mother’s illness. Escaping the realities of his frustrating world through his vivid imagination, he conjures up a tree monster who helps him deal with his emotional turmoil. The film carefully explores a number of issues such as bullying, growing up, friendship, loss and love, resulting in a cleverly produced and sensitively created masterpiece.

Back at The May Fair Hotel, the after party was in full swing to toast the success of the film and all those involved with it. Held in the newly refurbished, Mediterranean-inspired May Fair Kitchen, canapés aplenty, delicious drinks, glamorous guests and DJ Laris captured the mood of the festival perfectly. A great night out for film buffs.
