Many have been dog lovers all of their lives and now find themselves unable to care for a dog. Wag & Company volunteers are dog lovers too and know that it could just as easily be one of us or a family member; life changes so fast. So, with just an hour or two a week we provide some company and that much missed love of a dog.

They cover concepts such as navigating the sky or telescope workshops. Recommended ages are six years old and upwards. The focus of these events is on education and introducing the basics of astronomy, but if the skies are clear we may get the chance to glimpse the moon, a planet or maybe the sun depending on the season. You will still get to see our fantastic telescopes up close and the team will be on hand to answer everyone’s questions.

In his lecture, Roger will trace the development of Soviet cinema in the ideological thaw that followed Nikita Kruschev’s denunciation of Stalin in Feb 1956. That thaw saw a relaxation of repression and censorship enabling filmmakers to reject the state-ordained tropes of ‘socialist realism’ –with its celebration of Soviet ideals above all else - which had dominated and stifled Soviet culture theretofore; this heralded something of a renaissance in the nation’s filmmaking.

Family Bushcrafts
Family event

Build a shelter, light a fire, cook a meal, make something to take away. You’ll need to build a shelter, your own den in the woods. You’re going to eat so you’ll build and light your own camp fire (but no matches!). You’ll cook your food and then sitting round the fire you can have a go at making an elder-wood pea-shooter. Eat before you arrive and bring your own food to BBQ over your fire. The activity leader, Bruce Ferguson, is qualified through the Institute for Outdoor Learning to teach bushcrafts to groups and has been involved in bushcrafts and teaching woodland skills for over 30 years. All our leaders are DBS checked.

The concept of ‘national’ cinema has increasingly been questioned across contemporary scholarship in a globalized era and the focus has shifted towards the concept of ‘transnational’ instead. When it comes to Palestinian cinema, a true transnational cinema, it is often referred to as ‘Palestinian Cinema’ and for instance Palestinian films have been recognized and nominated for the Academy Awards Oscars.
