Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD)

Thu 25 Jan 2018, from 12 noon, Winter Garden, City Centre

Every year on 27 January, the world marks Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD). This has taken place in the UK since 2001. On this day we share the memory of the millions who have been murdered in the Holocaust and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur, in order to challenge hatred and persecution in the UK today. The central vision of HMD is to learn from the past in order to create a safer, better future.

This year the theme is "The Power of Words"

Free event, everyone welcome on 25th January:
12 noon to 4.30pm – Short films (drop in anytime)
5.30pm to 7pm – Memorial candlelit vigil with readings and reflections

In addition, from Monday 22nd to Monday 29th January there will be a collection of posters on display in the Winter Garden.

Foodhall

Jan 2018

Foodhall Café is an open community venue which offers food that would have been thrown away, surplus donated by retailers, on a "Pay-as-you-feel" basis. It is run by volunteers and encourages community engagement between the general public including students, homeless people, mental health groups, isolated people, people with addiction problems and people who need to access food.

You can help, whether by just visiting to eat and socialise, or maybe food preparation, or even playing the house piano.

The cafe opens Thursdays and Fridays, there are also art workshops and reading groups, and some nights it becomes a DIY venue for fundraiser gigs.
