Open House London is the world’s largest architecture festival, giving free public access to 800+ buildings, walks, talks and tours over the weekend of September 21 and 22, 2018.

During the Open House weekend visitors are invited to head out on their own magical adventure by exploring one of the houses with a clock in their walls. They can take a picture of one of the fantastic clocks in an Open House venue and share on social media with the hashtag #OpenHouseWithAClock for a chance to win a private screening of the film.

Some of the clocks featured include: Bow Church, Haberdashers’ Hall, The Charterhouse and the South London Botanical Institute.

Participants can download this amazing trail to find the clocks of Open House Weekend and the fascinating stories behind them.

The House With a Clock in Its Walls is a magical adventure from the people who brought you iconic classics such as E.T., Back to the Future and The BFG.

The House With a Clock in Its Walls tells the spine-tingling tale of 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) who goes to live with his uncle in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart. But his new town’s sleepy façade jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead.

The House With a Clock in Its Walls is released nationwide in cinemas on September 21, but you can see it first at special previews on September 15 and 16.
