Free Culture Cinema Burngreave Library Feb half-term

Free Culture Cinema at Burngreave Library
Come and get creatively inspired! 

Calling young people 12-19 in the Burngreave, Fire Vale, Firth Park & nearby areas of Sheffield – this half term, come to Burngreave Library for FREE cinema showings (& popcorn!) and to hear more and sign up for creative workshops happening through Nyara Collective at the library.

Our priority is to inspire 12 to 19s (depending on film certificate), but anyone older than this age bracket is welcome to come along and see if there are spare seats before the film starts!

As well as being free, each cinema showing has something else to offer such as free notebooks, a taster workshop, and on the final Friday night showing, we hope a special performance!

To sign up – put your name and age down at Burngreave Library when you’re passing, or register via Eventbrite.  Places limited but there will also be a number of places left open for on the door (first come first serve)…so tell your mates, and come and chill out with Nyara and get creatively inspired!!
