It’s one of those things whereby fans who regularly attend film premieres know just how busy some of the forthcoming red carpet events will be, and to secure a good spot fans arrive early to be first lined-up behind the barriers to catch a glimpse of the stars!

As most premieres take place late afternoon / early evening, Leicester square is already buzzing with people and as they say “A crowd attracts a crowd”. You always hear bypassers saying “Oh what’s happening”…very clearly it’s a London film premiere taking place!!

I have witnessed over the years many people camping over for movies including blockbusters like Twilight, Harry Potter, Sex in the city which are sure to attract a big audience.

Recently ’50 shades of grey’ had dozens of fans camp over in Leicester square, London; as people wanted to see stars including Sam Taylor-Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson and EL James up close.

Excited crowds (many of whom know each other) will gather very early in the morning to secure a spot ahead of this evening as the film premiere or they will camp over if they feel the reward of meeting the lead cast is big enough – Mark Boardman

Traditionally the local authorities have warned the public against camping over on safety grounds, however for some movies like the final Harry Potter film, a special area was set up with beverages provided.

Die-hard film fans will take their pillow, sleeping bag and just take what they need to get through. Later in the day you know the screaming fans will be scrambling d to get a selfie on the red carpet with the cast and invited celebs.

Leicester Square in central London is the place for film premieres – the area has improved since the re-development.
