We are very excited to launch our new Relaxed Film Club! The first film will be 'The Secret Life of Pets' held on Wednesday 12th July 2017.
Our new Film Club celebrates stories through film, and gives people with learning disabilities and autism the opportunity to come together to watch a film at a relaxed performance in an accessible, airy space, with other local film fans
It costs £4 for the film, and there will be a lovely tuck shop run by our Work Skills group where you can buy drinks and snacks too!
Please do let us know if you or someone you know would like to come - on 01373 454099 / firstname.lastname@example.org

Openstorytellers have been working in partnership with the University of Bristol to research the life of an 18th century woman named Fanny Fust, who had a learning disability and was an heiress to a large windfall. Her story is complex and tumultuous, and resonates with issues that many people with learning disabilities still face today
Openstorytellers are delighted to be presenting the initial findings at Creative Histories conference in Bristol this July.
