Queen of Katwe + Q&A

  • Amnesty International UK 25 New Inn Yard London, England, EC2A 3EA United Kingdom

Pack your January blues away and join us for February’s Welcome Cinema. Food, film and friends return this month with a screening of QUEEN OF KATWE followed by a Q&A with Poet Jade Amoli Jackson and British female chess champion Jovanka Housa.

‘A mainstream movie set in Africa that’s not about conflict zones, has an entirely black speaking cast, and is centred on the intellectual achievements of a female protagonist – this makes Queen of Katwe an altogether radical anomaly, yet it couldn’t be more multiplex-friendly.’ – Jonathan Romney, The Guardian

Our supper clubs are the stuff of legends. The Welcome Kitchen will be cooking up their usual spread of African and Middle Eastern – menu to be announced shortly.

Tickets for this event are free to refugees. For the great British public seats start at £17.50 and cap at £25. The price covers a sit down dinner, movie and post film discussion. We ask that you pay what you can afford bearing in mind that your food is lovingly cooked and served by volunteers.
