Azza Soliman event in York city centre  – Hand in Hand with Azza

Sunday, 14th July between 10.30 and 14.00 in St Sampson’s Square (next to Brown’s department store)

We will have a campaign stall plus a performance of women’s circle dancing for about half an hour from 12.30.

Karen Michaelsen, circle dance teacher, will lead the dancing.  We are inviting local circle dancers to come along, and Amnesty women are very welcome to join in!

If you want to take part and have no experience of circle dance Karen will have a short rehearsal at 6.45 p.m. on Tuesday 9th July in The Friends’ Meeting House on Friargate, York. Karen is planning a dance that is not complicated, and anyone can join in on the day.

The winning entries will be then exhibited between Sunday 30th June and Saturday 6th July at the City Screen Sky Lounge. Wheelchair accessible.

Arriving in London as a refugee from his native Peru with a ‘Please Look After This Bear’ label around his neck, our bewildered friend is fortunately taken in by kindly Mr and Mrs Brown. Voiced by Ben Whishaw, and named after the railway station he arrived at, Paddington embarks on a series of adventures. This charming film will delight fans old and new of the forever-popular books by Michael Bond.

Audio Description is available for this film, and is undetectable to anyone not wearing a headset. Booking via 0871 902 5747 or https://www.picturehouses.com/cinema/York_Picturehouse/film/paddington
