Featuring a series of interviews with traders and locals across Drummond Street, the film draws attention to the significance of the area, which has established itself as a unique pocket of homeliness within Euston, visualising itself as a love letter to the street's history and importance! Despite the challenges brought upon by the ongoing construction of the High Speed 2 rail link and COVID-19 pandemic, the community across Drummond Street have continued to sustain an earnest familiarity and thrive in the joy of hospitality.

The screening was an opportunity to watch the commissioned film and celebrate the interviewees alongside the team involved in making it. Featuring incredible catering by traders across Drummond Street who were interviewed as part of the film.
