'What's Eating Coventry?' FILM

Date: 23 April 2018

Location: Rose Community Centre Hope St, Coventry, CV1 3LH

Time: 18:30 - 22:00

'What's Eating Coventry?' film screening Register to attend this event here.

The Midlands Chapter of the Landworkers' Alliance and the Coventry Men's Shed group are collaborating with Five Acre Community Farm in Ryton and the Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience at Coventry University to show two films in Coventry over the next two months which they wish to use to initiate discussion on pressing local and national food issues.

The second film is called What's Eating Coventry and is produced by Coventry Men’s Shed. The film creatively explores the issue of poverty, social justice and how people are eating in the city of Coventry.

It also steps back and asks bigger questions about “What’s Eating Coventry” where the video makers link the problems in Coventry to issues related to austerity and exploitation. The film explores some of the ways that communities are responding to the issue of hunger and food poverty, offering new insights and hope for the future.

The Game of Love and Chai

Date: 24 April 2018 - 28 April 2018

Every day

Location: Belgrade Theatre Belgrade Square Corporation St Coventry CV1 1GS

“Ask me, just ask me! Pucho zara pucho! It’s punishment for falling in love!”

Kamala wants her daughter Rani to marry successful but emotionally awkward businessman Raj. Rani bristles at going down the conventional route and arranges a test for Raj. She convinces her cousin Sita to swap places and pretend to be the suitable bride – unaware that Raj has come up with the same scheme with his driver, Nitin!

Actor Nigel Planer (The Young Ones, Filthy Rich and Catflap) brilliantly updates Marivaux’s classic French farce to a modern Asian family in England, employing Bollywood song and dance to delicious effect as class and passion clash when Rani meets Raj.

Tickets: £13 & £15.50 Concessions: £10 - £13.50

Cost: £13
