British Ironworks Galactic Warrior appeal for Ukrain

Message from The British Ironworks Centre.

Intergalactic Aid For Ukraine


As if landed from a faraway galaxy, Gigantica, who now guards our entrance here at the British Ironwork Centre, has been created to draw urgent attention to the continuing plight in Ukraine. 

The British Ironworks Centre has been alarmed over falling public support for Ukraine, and has decided to relaunch its donation appeal using this galactic warrior.

Galactica has been placed at the entrance of the British Ironworks Centre, maximising public exposure and hopefully inspiring children and families to realise that the UK's support of Ukraine and Freedom shouldn't be allowed to continually fade out.

Gigantica is made from scrap car parts, and represents our reinvigorated campaign to support Ukraine in the war. 

Additionally, Gigantica is created of entirely of scrap plastic bumpers and other car parts – doubling as a champion of recycling! It's always our ambition to use scrap materials in addressing national and worldwide issues.

Chairman of  the British Ironwork Centre, Clive Knowles, commented that "we've seen an enormous fall in public donations arriving. Originally, we were receiving 2-3 donations a day, but now we've dropped to 1 donation every few weeks."

He continued: "With winter now upon Ukraine and the Russians bombing public infrastructure and housing, we feel that this humanitarian effort needs to be escalated and that our conscience had to see our efforts reenergised". 

Our hope is that this striking robot will raise important awareness of the ongoing war in Ukraine, and even more importantly, increase donations here at the Centre.

Gigantica is something that can be enjoyed and cherished by all (and that can provide plenty of picture and selfie opportunities!), while simultaneously providing a boost to an extremely important cause.

All of our sculptures and creations are deliberately created to raise public awareness to the difficulties here in the UK and around the world. From the environment crisis to social issues, using art to amplify messages to improve the world we all depend upon is something we strongly believe in.

Wildfire (15)
Oswestry Film Society Screening

Tuesday 1st November  7:30pm 

Please be aware that Oswestry Film Society Screenings have no trailers the film will start promptly at 7:30pm

This Irish film has had rave reviews for its take on the personal and the political pasts in Northern Ireland. Lauren lives near the border with her partner, when her troubled sister Kelly returns home after a mysterious yearlong absence, her return revives painful memories of their mother, who took her own life when they were both children. Yet Kelly's homecoming also relights the spirit in the hearts of both women, as they challenge the local men who are still in hock to the macho cult of terrorist violence.  It's a gripping 85 minutes that never gets too dark and shows there is always hope.

"Wildfire is a powerful 85 minutes filled with great complexity and some potent visual flourishes that emerge from the understated direction."
- Common Sense Media

Silent Land (15)

Wednesday 2nd November  7:30pm


After arriving at a holiday villa on an Italian island, bourgeois couple Adam (Dobromir Dymecki) and Anna (Agnieszka Zulewska) discover that the swimming pool is empty. The migrant worker sent to fix it suffers a deadly poolside accident, setting off a chain of disturbing events that shake the moral foundations of this seemingly-perfect couple. Aesthetically sparse, with an enigmatic plot, Agnieszka Woszczynska's debut feature is an unflinching character study that unfurls the power of denial.

Silent Land debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival, before picking up the FIPRESCI award for the International Competition at the Thessaloniki International Film Festival.

"The director's larger point is deployed with such subtlety that it creeps up on the viewer with devastating force." **** Globe and Mail

The Seagull
by Anton Chekhov, in a version by Anya Reiss directed by Jamie Lloyd

Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) makes her West End debut in this 21st century retelling of Anton Chekhov's tale of love and loneliness. 
A young woman is desperate for fame and a way out. A young man is pining after the woman of his dreams. A successful writer longs for a sense of achievement. An actress wants to fight the changing of the times. In an isolated home in the countryside, dreams lie in tatters, hopes are dashed, and hearts broken. With nowhere left to turn, the only option is to turn on each other.

Following his critically acclaimed five-star production of Cyrano de Bergerac, Jamie Lloyd brings Anya Reiss' adaptation of Anton Chekhov's classic play to stage. Filmed live in London's West End with a cast including Tom Rhys Harries (White Lines), Daniel Monks (The Normal Heart), Sophie Wu (Fresh Meat) and Indira Varma (Game of Thrones).

Adventure Club: BIG vs SMALL (15)

Wednesday 9th November 7:30pm

BIG vs SMALL is an energetic and inspirational documentary that profiles Joana Andrade, Portugal's first female big wave surfer, known to many as 'Tiny Fighter'. Fiery, athletic and constantly breaking barriers in her quest to improve as an extreme competitor, Joana seeks help from celebrated freediver, Johanna Nordblad, in order to face her demons and overcome the thunderous waters of Nazaré, Portugal. From the churning tides to the silent ice of Finland, this is a story of two elite females at the top of their game sharing their talents with each other in a journey of self-actualisation.

"From its opening scenes, fear takes centre stage: trembling, apprehension, terror. Careering into the unconscionable speed of monster waves, the roaring sound, the sheer frenetic force, is both stomach-lurching and exhilarating." MAP Magazine

"In a world where many women still find themselves having to "buck the trend" in order to follow their dreams, watching Andrade and Nordblad, you're likely to be tempted to dive into something new yourself." Eye For Film

Cast: Joana Andrade, Johanna Nordblad
Finland 2022 English, Portuguese, Finnish with English Subtitles

All That Breathes (12A)

Thursday 10th November  7:30pm

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, the Golden Eye at Cannes and The Grierson Award for Best Documentary at this year's London Film Festival, Shaunak Sen's superb documentary focuses on two brothers working to protect birds in New Delhi, while telling a more expansive story about contemporary life as a citizen of both India's capital and the world.

Nadeem and Saud live in a working-class, predominantly Muslim neighbourhood. Their business is soap dispensers, but their passion is their budding organisation Wildlife Rescue, as part of which they save black kites injured by the city's terrifyingly poor air quality. Lobbying for donations while lovingly tending to these magisterial birds of prey, Nadeem and Saud are a two-man band seeking to make change while the city faces life with pollution, overpopulation and climate change, and violent protests around India's anti-Muslim Citizen Act begin to grow.
Everything is connected in Sen's dreamy and impressionistic film, which provokes thinking around the intersections of the climate and environmental crises and the people they most affect, the relationship between humanity and the natural world, and the value of individual actions against an edifice of systemic problems.

"A complex, thoughtful, quietly beautiful film about the ecosystem and human community." ****. Peter Bradshaw - The Guardian

"All that Breathes is a stunningly beautiful film with lead camerawork by the acclaimed documentary cinematographer Benjamin Bernhard. A well-calibrated score accompanies the subtle and atmospheric sound design." ***** The Arts Desk

Director: Shaunak Sen
Hindi with English subtitles

Run time: 1 hour 31 mins

Don't Worry Darling (15)

Friday 11th & Saturday 12th November 7:30pm

Alice and Jack are lucky to be living in the idealized community of Victory, the experimental company town housing the men who work for the top-secret Victory Project and their families. The 1950s societal optimism espoused by their CEO, Frank —equal parts corporate visionary and motivational life coach—anchors every aspect of daily life in the tight-knit desert utopia. While the husbands spend every day inside the Victory Project Headquarters, working on the "development of progressive materials," their wives—including Frank's elegant partner, Shelley —get to spend their time enjoying the beauty, luxury and debauchery of their community.

Life is perfect, with every resident's needs met by the company. All they ask in return is discretion and unquestioning commitment to the Victory cause. But when cracks in their idyllic life begin to appear, exposing flashes of something much more sinister lurking beneath the attractive façade, Alice can't help questioning exactly what they're doing in Victory, and why. Just how much is Alice willing to lose to expose what's really going on in this paradise?

Director: Olivia Wilde

The search had been orchestrated by an amateur historian, Philippa
Langley, whose unrelenting research had been met with incomprehension by her friends and family and
with scepticism by experts and academics.

THE LOST KING is the life-affirming true story of a woman who
refused to be ignored and who took on the country's most eminent historians, forcing them to think
again about one of the most controversial kings in England's history.

Africa In Focus: Neptune Frost (15)

Thursday 17th November 7:30pm

We are very pleased to present our next Africa In Focus film selected by Tatenda Jamera, our Guest Curator.

Tatenda is the founder of MAONA ART (an independent community cinema & gallery commited to showcasing the best of African cinema and art) 

Multidisciplinary artists Saul Williams and Anisia Uzeyman bring their unique dynamism to the Afro-futurist vision of Neptune Frost. Natural resources are being mined, capitalism is out of control, fear of the future looms large and politics and technology collide in one of the most unique Sci-Fi films in recent years.

It is a sci-fi-punk musical that's a visually wondrous amalgamation of themes, ideas, and songs that they have been exploring in their work, including on Williams' 2016 album MartyrLoserKing.

Neptune Frost takes place in the hilltops of Burundi, where a group of escaped coltan miners camp in an otherworldly e-waste dump, they attempt a takeover of the authoritarian regime exploiting the region's natural resources –and its people. When an intersex runaway and an escaped miner find each other through cosmic forces, their connection sparks glitches within the greater divine circuitry.

Set between states of being – past and present, dream and waking life, colonised and free, male and female, memory and prescience – Neptune Frost is an invigorating and empowering direct download to the cerebral cortex and a call to reclaim technology for progressive political ends.

"In a word: Mesmerising. Neptune Frost is truly cinema in poetry, a visually (and aurally) stunning work of art that feels like it should be on display in a museum. it's a hypnotising musical odyssey." 
Alex - Film Audience Network Young Consultant

Run time: 1 hour 45 mins


A few words from our Africa In Focus Season Guest Curator

Maona is an independent cinema  committed to showcasing the best of cinema and art from Africa and African creatives from all over the world. Its conception was due to my personal desire and passion to see everyone experience the beauty of African art and film. Growing up in a continent that I am so proud of, I wanted to create something that would allow people to experience the rich heritage of this place.
Maona, pronounced ma-ona is a Shona word from Zimbabwe (my birth country) meaning you have seen. I chose this name as it encompasses the vision and goal for Maona, which is for people to see and experience. I am very proud of my heritage and I am confident that Maona will be the place where people can come, experience, enjoy and value this incredible culture. 
Many Thanks


Emily (15)

Friday 18th November 7:30pm

Sunday 20th November. 2:00pm 

Head to the wild beauty of the Yorkshire moors for an exhilarating journey imagining the life of one of the world's most enigmatic writers: Emily Brontë, a rebel, a misfit, and the distinctive, ahead-of-her-time voice behind 'Wuthering Heights'.

Emily explores the relationships that inspired Brontë (Emma Mackey): her raw, emotional turmoil with her sisters (and fellow authors) Charlotte and Anne, her forbidden love for local cleric Weightman (Oliver Jackson-Cohen), and her care for her maverick brother (Fionn Whitehead) whom she idolises. O'Connor's direction is wonderfully unexpected and inventive as she tells this moving 19th century coming of age tale with the all the verve of a 21st century rebellion.

Dir: Frances O'Conner
Cast: Adrian Dunbar, Gemma Jones, Fionn Whitehead, Emma Mackey

Run time: 2 hours 10 mins

Blacula (15) 50th Anniversary
+ Live Panel Discussion With Director William Crane

Saturday 19th November 7:00pm

We are very excited to be a participating venue for this very special event.

Wales' International Horror Festival, Abertoir, and Bristol Black Horror Club, will be
presenting a special 50th anniversary screening of Blacula, followed by a live panel
discussion from the festival, with director himself, William Crain, participating. Audiences
across the country will also be able to take part by asking questions via their mobile phone.

In the late eighteenth century, Prince Mamuwalde (William Marshall) travels from Africa to
Transylvania to seek Count Dracula's help in ending the transatlantic slave trade. Instead of helping, Dracula condemns Mamuwalde to eternal life as a vampire. 

When, a few centuries later, a pair of unwitting interior designers uncover his bones, the streets of 1972 Los Angeles won't know peace until Blacula has his revenge!

Initially an attempt by AIP to cash in on the burgeoning Blaxploitation scene of the early 70s, it was commendable for being the first studio-backed horror film by a Black director, William Crain. It kicked off a memorable trend in which the genre reimagined familiar horror tropes for the African-American audiences of the 70s. At a time when even films aimed at Black audiences were predominantly made by white filmmakers, Blacula overturned that trend and set a precedent in horror history.

Screening as part of In Dreams Are Monsters: A Season of Horror Films,
a UK-wide film season supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network.

Run time: 1 hour 32 mins + Panel Discussion


Stage Five Presents 'A Tender Thing' 
A Play By Ben Power

Tuesday 22nd November  7:30pm
Sunday 27th November  2:00pm

Another Romeo and another Juliet in a strikingly difference love story

" Is love a tender thing? It is too rough,Too rude, too boisterous, and it pricks like thorn."

Shakespeare's timeless poetry provides the backdrop for this delicate and moving account of old age, memory and the demands we make of those we love. When a married couple discover that their lifetime together is drawing to a close, they realise they cannot contemplate being apart.
Ben Power weaves the text of Romeo and Juliet into a provocative new tale of love and sacrifice.  Re-imagining Shakespeare's story, A Tender Thing is an elegiac yet ultimately hopeful account of the human capacity for love.

This short play will be preceded by a selection of exquisite words, music, images and song portraying the worlds of meaning encompassed in the one word, love.
Presented by a group of actors using texts in hand to bring you joy.

Director: Pam Johnson

Run time: 2 hous including an interval

The Oil Machine (PG)

Wednesday 23rd November  7:30pm

Oil has been an invisible machine at the core of our economy and society. It now faces an uncertain future as activists and investors demand change. Is this the end of oil?  

The Oil Machine draws on the voices of young activists, oil company executives, economists and pension fund managers to explore the vital questions that affect all our lives. We have five to ten years to control our oil addiction, and yet the licensing of new oil fields such as the Cambo oil field off Shetland is seen to be in direct contradiction to the Government's alignment with the Paris Climate Agreement and hosting of COP26. This documentary looks at how the drama of global climate action is playing out in the fight over North Sea oil. Oil companies are convinced that they can continue to keep drilling while keeping to Net Zero ambitions through adopting new technologies, such as Carbon Capture. But climate scientists are deeply sceptical of the Net Zero concept and the time it would take for these technologies to be effective.

The film reveals the hidden infrastructure of oil from the offshore rigs and the buried pipelines to its flow through the stock markets of London. As the North Sea industry struggles to meet the need to cut carbon emissions, oil workers see their livelihoods under threat, and investors seek to protect their assets. Meanwhile a younger generation of climate activists are catalysed by the signs of impending chaos, and the very real threat of global sea level rises. The Oil Machine explores the complexities of transitioning away from oil and gas as a society and considers how quickly can we do it?

The film brings together a fascinating array of voices including: Holly Gillibrand (dubbed "Scotland's Greta"), Kevin Anderson (Professor of Energy & Climate Change, Manchester University), Emeka Emembolu (Senior VP of BP North Sea), Jake Molloy (Regional Organiser, RMT Union), James Marriott (co-author of Crude Britannia), Mikaela Loach (Edinburgh medical student), Sir David King (former UK Govt. Chief Scientific Advisor), Deirdre Michie (CEO of Oil & Gas UK), Steve Waygood (Chief Responsible Investor at Aviva Investors), Tessa Khan (climate lawyer from Uplift), Ann Pettifor (economist & author), and others.

French Film Festival UK: Lost Illusions (15)

Thursday 24th November. 7:30pm

An all-star cast dazzles in the spectacular and exhilarating new film by Xavier Giannoli (The Singer, Marguerite) – an adaptation of Balzac's classic novel about a young idealist who learns that anything can be bought and sold. Epic in scope and impact, Lost Illusions is an eerily prescient fable, bracingly attuned to the anxieties of the modern media age. Winner of seven 2022 César Awards including Best Picture, this is grand French cinema at its finest and most lavish.

Director: Xavier Giannoli | 2022 | France

Juniper (15)

Friday 25th & Saturday 26th November. 7:30pm

Sam (17) has been on a self-destructive spiral that could lead to his death. He returns home from boarding school to find his wheelchair-bound English grandmother, Ruth has moved in. Ruth is an ex-war photographer with a lust for life and a love of the bottle. Sam soon finds himself profoundly confronted by her alcoholic wit and chutzpah. Their first meeting is awkward; their second violent. Things get worse when Sam finds himself stranded alone with her and her nurse Sarah for the school holidays. Both strong-willed characters, a battle of supremacy ensues, enabling Sam to embrace life again and for Ruth to face her mortality.

"Juniper provides, above all, an absolutely unforgettable role for Charlotte Rampling... It is surely Rampling's strongest and best role since she played Sarah Morton in Francois Ozon's The Swimming Pool (2003)." ****  The Arts Desk

Cast: Marton Csokas, Charlotte Rampling, George Ferrier, Edith Poor

Run time: 1 hour 35 mins

French Film Festival UK: Peter Von Kant (15)

Tuesday 29th November. 7:30pm

Peter Von Kant, a successful and famous director living with his assistant Karl (whom he likes to mistreat), falls in love with a handsome young man of modest means.

François Ozon goes back to his roots with this reworking of a Fassbinder classic – 1972's hyper-stylised chamber piece The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant – and offers a gender-swapped version that serves as an indirect portrait of the troubled maestro himself. Both homage and critique, Peter Von Kant astutely gets under the skin of the lesbian-themed original, and ekes out new resonances. Superb performances from a cast across the age range – including a flamboyantly knowing diva turn from Isabelle Adjani.

"Ozon gives Fassbinder's all-female 1972 drama a makeover, making it lighter and more camp. " - The Guardian

Director: François Ozon | 2022 | France / Belgium 

Cast: Denis Ménochet, Isabelle Adjani, Khalil Ben Gharbia 

Screened with English subtitles

Run time: 1 hour 25 mins

Hilma (12A)

Wednesday 30th November  7:30pm
Thursday 1st December  7:30pm

Hallström, known for the classic films The Cider House Rules, My Life As A Dog, What's Eating Gilbert Grape? and Chocolat returns to the big screen with this affecting drama, based on the life of the abstract artist Hilma af Klint (1862-1944).

The film explores the enigmatic life - and loves - of af Klint (1862-1944), whose unconventional and highly spiritual art remained relatively unknown for decades.  It tells the story of an unwavering search for the truth about humanity and the universe through art, at a time when men made all the rules. Today af Klint is recognised as one of the Western world's first abstract artists, an achievement made even more impressive by the male-dominated artistic scene that surrounded her.

"A brave, extraordinary, strangely moving and at times transformative piece." **** Film Review Daily

Director: Lasse Hallstro¨m
Cast: Tora Hallstro¨m, Lena Olin, Tom Wlaschiha, Lily Cole, Rebecca Calder, Maeve Derody, Catherine, Chalk, Jazzy De Lisser, Anna Bjo¨rk.
