British Film Festival 2013 Opening Night & After Party

Last night was the opening night of the British Film Festival at the Palace Verona, Paddington. The feature film titled One Chance, was a hilarious film about the rags to riches story of the season one winner of Britain’s Got Talent, David Potts.

Britain is a hothouse of leading style, and there was some great style from some of the attendees seen at the after party held at Paddington Arms Hotel.

The band played while we feasted on canapés of British fair of fish and chips, shepherd’s pie, Yorkshire pudding, “Bangers and mash”, crumbed fish cakes, and for dessert, trifle.
