Join us at Toynbee Hall on the 13th of June for our film premiere: Moving Pictures

To mark World Elder Abuse Awareness Day on the 15th of June, Toynbee Hall’s Dignify project is launching a film premiere event on the 13th of June 2013. The film will be screened at historic Toynbee Hall from 12:30pm. Later on in the afternoon, there will be an interactive discussion about safety in relationships followed by a forum-theatre style session, where you will have the opportunity to see your ideas and thoughts about the story’s potential outcomes, be performed by live actors. A buffet lunch and refreshments will also be provided. See our flyer for more details.


The film is about Charlie, a lover of the outdoors who manages a mental health condition. He’s now been out of hospital for almost four months and is improving each day as he attends the garden project run by his friend Dylan. Charlie’s sister, Nat, helps him out with daily chores and the stressful bus journeys to and from his appointments and project work. Life seems to be coming up roses for Charlie. But when Nat gets a new boyfriend, Ben; Charlie’s life takes an unexpected and unwelcome turn.

This event, funded by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and Toynbee Hall, is open to anyone who works for or attends a service for older people and adults with learning disabilities or mental health service users. Please note that priority seats will be given to individuals and organisations that are based in Tower Hamlets.
