Please bring weather-appropriate clothes as we will need to keep the room well ventilated, and your own seat cushion if you require one.

We are asking everyone not exempt to please wear a face covering in enclosed spaces. This is the recommended government guidance but it isn’t mandatory.

We will have plenty of hand sanitizer available for you to use.

This returning season will be a combination of some of the short films aired online since last year, alongside some in-person talks.

Please bring your own chair cushion if you require one.

Tea and coffee will be available.
