IT'S BACK! Another night of Sister Act 2 movie goodness. But before the film, you get to sing, clap and dance (chair dancing or other) with a LIVE Gospel Choir thanks to the Birmingham Community Gospel Choir!! 😍

As before the choir will perform a few songs to warm us all up very nicely before the film starts. We were lucky to have the same choir with us for Sister Act and they sounded divine 😂. 

Doors (for entry): 2015
Gospel choir intro and then the film screening.

EXIBITION : Valiska

EXIBITION : Valiska

Born in Poland but now based out of Calgary, Canada, Valiska creates gritty, overcast soundscapes inspired by the likes of Tim Hecker, Rafael Anton Irisarri, and Grouper. Although his hometown is often overshadowed by other Canadian cities such as Montreal, Valiska has been part of an insular but slowly expanding scene, exploring strands of experimental drone and ambient. Krzysztof Sujata has been making experimental music as Valiska since 2010. Drawing inspiration from the tension between the city and rural landscapes of his Calgary home, the project combines ambient and drone with elements of modern composition.

Presented as part of Behind the Curtain Festival

£5 on the door
