20th July 2017: The Red Turtle
“This wordless animated fable follows the fortunes of a shipwrecked man on an island – and it’s a masterpiece!” – Mark Kermode, The Guardian
We’d like to invite you to our monthly Film Night in July where we’re going to show “The Red Turtle”. The 2016 animated fantasy film co-written and directed by Dutch-British animator Michaël Dudok de Wit and produced by Toshio Suzuki from Japan tells the story of a man who becomes shipwrecked on a deserted island and meets a giant red turtle. Soon, though, his story blooms into something more mysterious and meditative – and though there isn’t a single word of dialogue in the film’s 80-minute running time, the big questions it asks, about ambition, acceptance and the beauty of companionship, ring loud in every heart-melting frame.

22nd September 2017, 12-8pm: AMANI African Arts Festival
The stage is set for the launch of a brand new annual African Arts festival for Manchester.
The first Amani festival, which is the brainchild of African-led social enterprise, Amani Creatives, will take place between 12 noon and 8pm on Saturday, 22 July at Sacred Trinity Church. It represents the opportunity for all residents and cultures of Salford and Manchester city centre to come together to celebrate high quality African arts, including live music, storytelling, face decoration, dance and workshops, thus enriching the local arts scene. Food and related cultural traders stalls will also be on site.
Amani Creatives supports the inclusion of local African communities into wider society through performing arts events, workshops and programmes which use arts and culture as a tool for community development, wellbeing and community cohesion. The organisation was set up in January 2015 by Congolese singer-songwriter, Emmanuela Yogolelo and Cameroonian Jazz musician, Tagne Tebu.
Our Community Choir will also be taking part in the musical performances – so please come along!
15th September 2017, 8.30pm: Dan Reed – Confessions UK Tour
Singer-songwriter from Portland, Oregon incorporating simple acoustic songs with world sounds and samples. He’s written many electronic tracks, some with his own vocals or some with sampled vocals from different political speakers. With songs composed from Hong Kong to New Dehli, Jerusalem to London, Dan’s music has a global sound.
The Confessions UK Tour sees Dan Reed take in intimate venues around the UK performing acoustically for what will be a very special and spiritual set of shows.
The performances are taking place in some beautiful and atmospheric venues and we will be filming and recording the first three to create a Live DVD release… Each ticket includes a downloadable Hi-Resolution MP4 video file of the DVD and downloadable digital WAV and MP3 mixes of all the tracks from the DVD. The audio mixes will not be available anywhere else!
As is typical with Dan Reed shows the evening will be immersive and interactive giving you, the audience the opportunity to contribute directly to something special and create something unique. So have your requests at the ready!
