The Cinema Museum - Charlie Chaplin Online Event


Charlie Chaplin & The Story of Care, Thurs Feb 4th 18:00 (via zoom)

Why would a 100 year old film matter to us?  The Kid (1921) propelled Chaplin to stardom and was very much one of his most personal movies, resonating his own childhood experiences and his rag to riches story too.

Join Dr Carol Homden, group Chief Executive of Coram, Kate Guyonvarch from The Chaplin Office in Paris, and British Film Institute expert Bryony Dixon for a discussion on Chaplin and the story of care, to mark the centenary of this classic film.

Did you know?
It’s well known that in the 1960s, Baker Street was home to the Apple Boutique - one of the first business ventures by the Beatles. But less well known is on the store's opening day on 1967, the Fab Four were all sipping apple juice as the shop had no alcohol license!

Our New Windows
Future Matters
Fortnum’s has been around for over 300 years and we’re always looking for new and inventive ways to conduct our business in a way that is sustainable for all of us over the next 300.

Our newly unveiled Duke Street windows in Piccadilly tell the stories of just a few of them. Say hello to our rather splendid Window Whale, brought to life with some of the 140 tonnes of single use-plastic we removed from our business last year (and every year, forever). You can hear her echolocating all around the West End.
Do You Take Plastic?
Not any more. All of our teabags are now plastic-free and completely compostable, while the tea itself acts as a great nitrogen-rich soil fertiliser after you've finished your cup.
