My First Experience at FrightFest London

On Friday 23rd August I went to FrightFest London, a horror film festival. 2019 was the festival's 20th anniversary year which is why it was so special that I was able to go! While there were a vast array of films being presented, due to time constraints I was only able to see three films …

GBBO Bake-Along: Cake Week
