After an absence of 18 months, Kaleidoscope returns to staging free events.
There is no entry fee for this event, but a collection will be taken for our chosen charity, the RNLI.
28 years after our first event, Kaleidoscope is delighted to return to the Midlands. We have a new home. The Curzon Building at Birmingham City University is located in central Birmingham at Millenium Point. It's a purpose built venue for lectures, seminars and film screenings. It has wonderful facilities for screenings; excellent sound via an in-built PA and it has its own bar and coffee shop. You must bring a ticket registered via Eventbrite for entrance. Tickets are free.
To promote Kaleidoscope's ongoing campaigns to find lost television via www.lostshows.com and in conjunction with the BFI, BBC and ITV; Kaleidoscope is delighted to provide a day of screenings and guest introductions that showcase lost material recently found.
