We have partnered up with Feminista Films to bring you 90 minutes of inspiring films about women and girls.
Regulars may remember – we screened the Feminista Tour in March to celebrate International Women’s Day. This virtual screening is for those of you who missed it – or for those of you who loved it so much, you want to watch it again! We’re hoping to welcome Feminista back to Catford Mews when we’re back open.
Here are the details for this virtual screening:
