Friday night at the movies

Posted by Volunteer Administrator on 10th May 2018

Join us for a special presentation of the classic film High Fidelity and Q&A with Nick Hornby to help raise money to support our young writers.

Next Friday, we will be hitting the cinema with our friends Genesis Cinema and Hoxton based café Matters Of Vinyl Importance, as they kick off a monthly screening of some of the best-loved music based films.

To launch this exciting new collaboration, the screening will be raising funds for the Ministry, helping more young people explore their imagination and take part in projects like Speak Up and Picture Books.

First released in 2000 staring John Cusack and Jack Black, High Fidelity is the screen adaptation of award-winning author and Ministry Co-founder Nick Hornby’s classic novel of the same name.

Lucy Macnab, Director and Co-founder of the Ministry of Stories explains, “This event is a great way for us to meet our local community and to celebrate the strong connection between music and writing with our Co-founder, Nick Hornby. Alan has been a hugely enthusiastic next-door neighbour and the funds raised on the night will make a great difference to our writing centre this year. We also hope that by sharing the story of our charity with the audience, we will spark their enthusiasm to get involved and help inspire our young writers at the Ministry of Stories, through volunteering, donations or by supporting future events.”

Tickets cost £10 with an optional £10 donation. All donations and a percentage of ticket sales come right back to the Ministry.

Grab your tickets here and we’ll see you at the popcorn stand!
