This event will be inspiring, empowering and fun!

Bring your friends along!
This is a must see film and fantastic opportunity to watch it, as there is currently no distribution in the UK, so you can’t get it on Netflix or on a DVD or anywhere else.
WATCH THE TRAILER HERE:
Embrace tells the story of Taryn Brumfitt’s journey from body loather to body lover – an Australian wife and mother who embarks on an international crusade to change the way we think and feel about our bodies.
This powerful documentary uncovers why poor body image has become a global epidemic and what women everywhere can do to have a brighter future.
This screening is part of Embrace: The Union Project. By buying your ticket you are contributing to a body image revolution throughout the UK. The screening licence fee goes towards a vital body image education package, which The Body Image Movement will make available to every secondary school across the UK for free, once 2000 screening have taken place. The education package will inspire life-changing body image conversations in the classroom.
The film is 90min long. The screening will be followed by a discussion and drinks. The event will end at 11PM. If you are in a hurry you will be able to leave straight after the film finishes, which will be around 9:40pm.
*Drinks are not included in the price of the ticket. Drinks will be available for purchase.
