DESTINATION UNKNOWN: Stories From The Refugee Crisis
Come and join us for an evening of talks and stories from incredible individuals who have experienced the refugee crisis first hand.
Our aim is to provide an alternative, more personal perspective on the crisis. It'll be an eye opening, emotional and insightful evening.
All proceeds from the event will go to The Worldwide Tribe - a grassroots charity who are doing amazing work in camps across Europe and beyond.
Food and drink will be provided (including free wine on arrival) and there'll also be the opportunity to win some fantastic prizes.
So come eat, drink, listen and be merry for a good cause. We can't wait to see you.
