In aid of a convoy to Calais

It’s getting frighteningly closer to the end of the year, but we’re not done yet!

For our twelfth(!) and final screening of the year, we’re joining up with The Beestonian Film Club to return to the fabulous Cafe Roya, bringing along Sean McAllister’s triumphant A Syrian Love Story.


Political prisoners, Amer and Ragdha, fall in love in captivity. Through their activism and quest for freedom we see the beginnings of the revolution and why people are dying for change, and fleeing for their lives.

We’ll be also be hearing from a few local poets reading poems and hearing the poignant and myth-busting story of an Eritrean refugee, Ezedin Osman.

As well as all that, we’ll of course be showing a short a film or two!. And, as always, Roya will be cooking up a treat of a vegetarian meal, included in the ticket price.


This screening will also be raising funds for the current, and sadly ongoing, refugee crisis. The mighty Sergio from The White Lion will be doing a much needed food run to Calais in January – all funds raised from your ticket prices will go towards this vital trip.

Tickets will be available on the door. It’s first come first served – so get there for 4pm to guarantee a place.



Thanks to The Beestonian Film Club at Cafe Roya, Café Roya, Kathy Bell, Ezedin Osman and everyone who came along tonight (and bought a raffle ticket) to our screening of A Syrian Love Story. We even had a live chat with the director of the film, Sean Mcallister!

In total, we raised £142 for Sergio’s (of the White Lion Bar & Kitchen) mission to Calais. Thank you!

We’re going to try and have a break now – but see you all in the new year!
