Stirchley Baths has a great space, the “ Cinema Room” which has played host to a number of film screenings since opening in 2016 and will be hosting more and more film events thanks to a new community led Stirchley Community Cinema Project , seed funded by the city’s Local Innovation Fund – this will be starting in the next couple of months so watch this space!
In the meantime we have caught up with our good friends Kopfkino who are returning to Stirchley Baths this Friday 16 March with a new screening of Afshar Films’ ‘The Case Against Assad: Syria’s Disappeared’. The event will be in support of King’s Heath Action for Refugees, and please see below about other ways in which you can help those affected by the Syrian conflict….
On Tuesday 19th February I was invited to visit the Memory Café, a monthly event, initially set up as part of Stirchley Baths’ heritage programme in collaboration with Rachel Duggan and Carla Smith from Leaf Creative Arts. The event is held in the Cinema Room at Stirchley Baths. The Café provides a space for people with dementia, Alzheimer’s and other memory problems to engage with multi-sensory arts activities, to create and reminisce, with a steady supply of hot drinks and cakes.
Some of our regular adult stitchers had such a good time working on the Big Stirchley Baths Stitch Project, they didn’t want it to end! We are delighted to announce that we are continuing to run a monthly Stitch Club, and new people are welcome to join. To start, people are asked to bring in their own work, but we hope to start a new collaborative project in the future. £2 suggested contribution per session. Enjoy a cuppa, chat and being creative with like-minded individuals in a relaxed and welcoming environment.
