SAFFRON Walden residents turned out in their droves on Saturday night for the first ever outdoor film screening on the Common.
Around 2,800 people stamped their place in history at the free, open-air screening of crowd-favourite Mamma Mia!
The event was hosted by the Cambridge Film Festival and Saffron Screen to celebrate the town’s community cinema and as part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
Revellers took to social media website Streetlife to praise the occasion, with one user, Barry J, writing: “Great night last night on the Common with Meryl Streep and the rest. Must do it again. Thanks to all involved.”
