This post is likely to be incomplete as it was written a while ago, before I went on holiday. In particular, it is likely to omit one or two events at the KCC. If you know of anything to be added, please leave a comment below.

KCC Film nights

  • This month the theme is the Family. First up, on 8 May, is The Way Home, a touching film about a spoiled brat from the city who has to stay with his grandmother in the countryside. Later, on 22 May, we will get Family Ties.
