Love Actually, with Elle & the Pocket Belles

Love Actually, with Elle & the Pocket Belles

“There was more than one lobster at the birth of Jesus?”

Richard Curtis’ romance is a modern Christmas classic. Following the story of eight different couples in the build up to Christmas — and a nativity lobster — the British comedy stars Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson and Keira Knightly, and will have you believing in love (and Christmas magic) before the end credits start rolling.

Before and after the film, Elle & the Pocket Belles will be there to captivate you with their modern-retro sound. Taking inspiration from the glamorous golden age, these harmonic songstresses put their unique swingin’ spin on festive hits. Their fun, energetic performance is suitable for all ages and will get you in the Christmas spirit.

Presented by the Royal Docks in partnership with the University of East London.
