Advice & Support Service

 

February 2018.......

 

Service News - The Advice & Support Service would like to thank the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation for their generosity in supporting clients at the Centre as well as other organisations based within the Centre. Teresa attended the Irish Embassy for the first ever celebration of Lá Fhéile Bríde (St. Brigid’s Day) where she was in the company of such people as Orla Kiely OBE, Pauline McLynn, Róisín Conaty Camille O’Sullivan and last but by no means least a surprise visit from President Higgins & his wife Sabina. The day was a celebration of the creativity and contribution of Irish women with lots of wonderful music and song. The event closed with an interesting and inspiring speech from President Higgins. A great big thank you to the Embassy for putting on such an excellent event.

Film Club

1st & 3rd Tuesday of each month at 1:30pm

Tuesday, February 6th - Hear My Song. Nightclub owner Mickey O'Neill (Adrian Dunbar), a fast-talking charmer, has figured out a way to save his financial sinkhole of a business: book famous Irish tenor Josef Locke (William Hootkins) for a performance. There are several major problems, however -- Locke has been in exile for years and the  man O'Neill has been in contact with is a con artist. O'Neill's reputation is destroyed, but, when the real Locke (Ned Beatty) shows up to perform, his luck may turn for the better.

Tuesday, February 20th - Till the Clouds Roll By. On opening night of his new Broadway musical, "Show Boat," composer Jerome Kern (Robert Walker) reflects on his long career. With the help of his mentor, composer James Hessler (Van Heflin), a young Jerry travels to Europe and soon has one of his tunes placed in a successful production. Back home, J erry's unceasing efforts result in the production of his first show. Jerry's career blossoms and he works with the best artists of the day while guiding James' wayward but talented daughter, Sally.

 

 

The Film Club is open to anyone who feels isolated or needing an outlet where they can socialise in a warm and welcoming environment. There is no cost to attend, no obligation to book in ahead you literally just turn up on your own or with some friends around 1:30pm on the day.
