The drizzle turned into rain, inspite of crossed fingers, sundances, wishful thinking, and whatever else people do. But more than 80 people turned up to the Wanstead Kinema, and stayed despite teeming rain. At least half were left by the end of Despicable Me. Resilience, bloody-mindedness, determination to make the #wansteadfringe memorable, whatever it was, tonight was the Wanstead Miracle of 2013.
