Although largely UK produced, it’s regarded as “world cinema” because of its setting and non-English speakers.
The spellbinding documentary follows Aisholpan, a 13-year-old nomadic Mongolian girl who is fighting to become the first female eagle hunter in twelve generations of her Kazakh family.
Through breathtaking aerial cinematography and intimate verite footage, the film captures her personal journey while also addressing universal themes like female empowerment, the natural world, coming of age and the onset of modernity.
Cabaret layout – 4.5 metre screen – excellent bar – full of friendliness

Whalebone’s Totally Plucked tour features high energy acoustic music alongside haunting atmospheric tunes, played on guitars, baritone guitars, bouzouki and mandolin by duo Steve Downs and Char Watson.
The show includes material from their latest album ‘Mirabilia’, inventive interpretations of traditional music, rock classics and original material from their award-winning albums along with tall tales, folklore and myths which inspired the music.
With artistic sensitivity always at the fore coupled with their charismatic rapport at live shows Whalebone promise a feast of 6 and 8 string fireworks!
‘Whalebone’s Totally Plucked set is live performance at its most scintillating. Their art is to craft a dynamic, rhythmic, melodic wall of sound and deliver their clever arrangements with virtuosity. Close your eyes and you could believe there are twice as many musicians on stage.’ Mick – concert organiser

Broseley’s amateur dramatics group brings us another hysterically funny comedy from the Farndale Avenue suite, penned by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jnr
BroADS presented us with the ladies’ version of Macbeth a year or two back.
This one orbits around the efforts of the Townswomen’s Guild’s efforts to mount a sci-fi thriller: in their usual hopeless and hilariously funny fashion of course.
“They came from Mars and landed outside the Farndale Avenue Church Hall in time for the Townswomen’s Guild’s coffee morning”
The comedy itself is not a long one, but what a title!
Laugh yourselves silly at Broseley’s Birchmeadow. Tickets available from October 1st at Downes’s in Broseley High Street or via our website.
We can hardly wait until the BroADS crew heads out to the launch pad and the Red Planet. The countdown’s begun, and the excitement’s building.
Broseley’s amateur dramatics group, Directed by Kate Harris, brings us a hysterical Farndale Avenue comedy … another ACE by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jnr.
“They came from Mars and landed outside the Farndale Avenue Church Hall in time for the Townswomen’s Guild’s coffee morning” is the title … nearly as long as the first act !
One wonders just how the Guild is going to make out this time – hilariously incompetently, no doubt.
Life in the impoverished slum of Katwe is a constant struggle.
When young Phiona meets Katende, a soccer player turned missionary who teaches children chess, she is captivated.

Her mother isn’t too happy initially, but she comes to realise that Phiona has a chance to excel. So she teams up with Katende to help Phiona fulfil her potential, to escape a life of poverty, and to save her family.
