Kopfkino & Stirchley Baths

present a community screening of


Director: Ken Loach

7.30pm Friday 10th February 2017

Free screening (suggested donation £5)

Daniel Blake (59) has worked as a joiner most of his life in Newcastle. Now, for the first time ever, he needs help from the State. He crosses paths with single mother Katie and her two young children, Daisy and Dylan. Katie’s only chance to escape a one-roomed homeless hostel in London has been to accept a flat in a city she doesn’t know, some 300 miles away.

Daniel and Katie find themselves in no-man’s land, caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy as played out against the rhetoric of ‘striver and skiver’ in modern-day Britain.

“a celebration of the decency and kinship of (extra)ordinary people.”

whilst working is being done on the Friends Meeting House.

Stirchley Baths: No longer a swimming pool, but a vibrant community hub, Stirchley Baths hosts an exciting programme of regular community activities and events, including heritage tours and family trails around the building.

Kopfkino:  Kopfkino (literal translation “head cinema”) brings you occasional filmic occurrences to make you think. We invite you to watch a film & support a local cause.
