Tickets: £5 / U16 £3 on the door. This is a re-run of the movie that had to be cancelled on 15 November due to a malfunction of the DVD player. We now have a brand-new DVD player (as well as the brand-new overhead projector), so all will be well from now on!

Copies of the book will be available on the day, with proceeds going to the charity.
Afternoon tea will be served by Turtle Dove, Cambridge. The Turtle Dove team is composed of young women between the ages of 15 and 23 who are at risk of unemployment due to negative life experiences. The charity provides the important support that raises the women’s profile and expectations as to what they can achieve in life.
The event concludes with a kimono catwalk of some of Deanna Tyson’s handmade, art kimono, and an informal Q&A session, Talking Kimono. All money raised from the event will go to Turtle Dove Cambridge.
