Brown Bag Films 25th #BirthdayBash





We celebrated Brown Bag Films 25th anniversary in business this year with a HUGE party in the Round Room at The Mansion House on Thursday, 18th of April!

We danced the night away to the musical stylings and fabulous extravaganza of none other than the fantastic Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow. There were jugglers, aerial hoopists, hula hoopists, cotton candy and popcorn machines and even a SNAKE!

We, of course, have photographic evidence:
