AGM 2020

2020 Annual General Meeting

As 2020 comes to an end there is still no sign of when we might be able to get together to hold the AGM so we have decided to move it online. This is will be a shorter meeting than usual focussing on the things we are required to do each year such as approving the financial report and electing the trustees. The meeting is scheduled to take place on:

Monday 1st February 2021 at 7pm

Joining Instructions

We are holding the meeting on Zoom, members have now been emailed details on how to RSVP to receive the passcode and join. If you have not received this email please contact us.



Special General Meeting

Monday 1st March 2021 at 7pm

The Friends of the Hyde Park Picture House online Annual General Meeting on February 1st 2021 was attended by 42 people. It was good to have so much interest. However this number fell below the quorum we needed to make formal decisions. We went through all agenda items and recorded your views in the draft minutes.

We have arranged an online Special General Meeting on Monday March 1st at 7pm to take the formal decisions needed, guided by the AGM discussions. This time the quorum will just be the number of people attending rather than a set figure.

This shorter than usual Special General Meeting will be followed by discussion of ways ahead for the Friends over the next few years and beyond. We look forward to your contributions on ideas for future activities, working groups and Committee membership, the relationship of the Friends to the Picture House, and what membership of the Friends means.

Instructions on how to join the meeting will be sent to members via email nearer the time.


The meeting will be followed by discussion of ways ahead for the Friends. This will include:-

  • Clarification of membership of the Friends and of the Hyde Park Picture House
  • What do you see as the core activities of the Friends in the coming years?
  • How can we best support the Cinema?
  • What activities or projects are you most interested in?-
  • An opportunity for you to put yourself forward for co-option to the Friends’ Committee (which would involve becoming a trustee of the Friends’)
  • An opportunity to join any working groups that we decide to set up
  • Future meetings
