Hub Iftar

 

 Join us for our second Hub Iftar.

Muslims across the country and around the world are observing ramadan. Ramadan is a 30 day period of fasting, prayer and giving to charity amongst other things. Iftar quite simply means the opening of the fast.

Muslim members of the Hub invite you to come along and share a sunset meal to open their fast. To attend all you need to do is book your free ticket via Eventbrite and bring a dish to share. Bring family and friends, hear the call the prayer and a bit about Ramadan, and help open a fast with us as the sun goes down. (We’e not asking you to fast, just to join us for a meal!).

Tickets: you can book your free ticket for Hub Iftar here via Eventbrite 

 

Hub Iftar also coincides with June’s Yellow Wednesday screening of ‘Eighteen’. This Yellow Wednesday is part of UK Refugee Week 2017 (19-25 June 2017) and is in partnership with Stand Up To Racism and The Amirah Foundation.

 

Moving On: ‘Eighteen’

‘Mati has lived with his adopted mother Rosie and brother George, who has Down’s syndrome, since he was seven years old. On his 18th birthday, in the midst of all the celebrations, he discovers that his leave to remain in the country has been declined. He’s being deported. Devastated and terrified, he lies to Rosie that he can stay. The next day Mati leaves for work as normal but doesn’t return. Desperate to stay in the UK, he goes on the run. When Rosie and George discover the letter, they begin to panic, leading George to run away from home in search of his brother. With two boys missing, how will Rosie find them and solve this seemingly impossible situation?’
 
The screening will also include a Q&A with lead actor Antonio Aakeel. Hub Iftar will take place straight after the screening. Tickets for Yellow Wednesday are free for current and active Impact Hub Birmingham members and £5.77 for non members. Book your tickets for Yellow Wednesday here.
