Tickets and details

Screening as part of the Museum of London’s programme of events inspired by their London Nights photography exhibition is Julien Temple's adaptation of Colin MacInnes' novel about life in late 1950s London.

With racial tension brewing in Notting Hill, nineteen-year-old photographer Colin is hopelessly in love with model Crepe Suzette (Patsy Kensit), but her relationships are strictly connected with her progress in the fashion world. So Colin gets involved with a pop promoter and tries to crack the big time

Starring Eddie O'Connell, James Fox, Mandy Rice-Davies and even David Bowie (who, of course, wrote the title song).
