Women's Month 2020 Film nights
As part of the Women's Month celebrations we are showing many female focused films throughout the month.
Tickets are free, but you can donate any amount you wish - and by doing this, you are directly helping educate women at Blackburne House. We are a charity whose primary aim is to educate and train women (some disadvantaged) to change their lives.
We do ask that you buy one soft or alcoholic beverage - and a delicious supper menu will be available to purchase.
