Reels on Wheels – new themed ride


To celebrate the incredible Portobello Film Festival’s 23rd birthday Bikeminded and Exquisite Folly Theatre have re-united to bring you ‘Reels on Wheels’ an interactive and playful look at the history of films shot in and around the Portobello landscape. Come dressed as your favourite character from the Silver Screen (there will be prizes) and be prepared to ride, make and hum your way through the streets of North Kensington.


So, whether you are an Absolute Beginner at cycling or if you don’t know your Notting Hill from your Lavender Hill, there’s no Pressure. Whether your name is Sammy, Rosie, Leo the Lion, Sid or Nancy we want to you to follow us down the Portobello Road for an afternoon of history, creativity and surprises!
