On Wednesday evening, Jennifer Saunders, Beattie Edmondson, Emily Atack and Tom Bennett and rest of the cast and crew from upcoming movie Patrick came to an exclusive private London garden for its premiere and what an unusual, dog-filled event it was!

Most premieres are held in Leicester Square and swarmed by the public and fans, but this had no fan presence. There was simply a media line set up on the grass before a tent where the film was being screened. Dogs were welcome, given the dog star of the movie, and many guests brought theirs along, making it a right canine extravaganza – there were podiums and dog thrones for them to pose on and everything!

Saunders didn’t do any press, which didn’t surprise me, but she did lots of photos with her own dog. Her daughter Edmondson seemed lovely and did most of the press, but didn’t get to me as she kept being pulled away for photo opps. The support cast were the best, and I had a great chat with director Mandie Fletcher and Bennett, who I adored in Love & Friendship.
