A cat-themed film festival is coming to London

Isabelle Aron

Do you love cats? Do also you love spending hours of your time on YouTube watching videos of cats? You do? Well, your idea of a purrr-fect night out is happening in London in November: a festival dedicated to the greatest cat videos of all time. Yep, this is really happening. 

Catnip Festival is coming to The Coronet in Elephant & Castle on November 25 for a one-night celebration of the finest feline videos around. Expect a cat video room, a cat meme gallery and a cat gymnasium, as well as cat-themed games, cabaret and music. One thing you won't find is any actual cats, because let's face it, that would be kind of cruel.

The organisers are giving 15 percent of the profits to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, so you'll actually be doing some good by spending the night watching endless cat videos. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to us.
