Bermondsey Street: A London Story by Adam Bates and Julie Calvert received its premiere at the Shortwave Cinema in Bermondsey Square in May this year, raising money for the Manna Centre for homeless people.

The film is being screened again twice at Shortwave on Saturday as part of the Bermondsey Street Festival and DVDs will also be on sale at the festival.

The film features a range of people who know and love Bermondsey Street, from George the barber to Dame Zandra Rhodes and Norman Ackroyd to Jose Pizarro.
