In collaboration with Amnesty International and This Fan Girl, shado has created a documentary short about Comfort Angels – the football team bringing inclusion and integration for refugees and people seeking asylum in Liverpool.

Join us for the premiere, where we will screen the documentary (5 mins) and hold a space of welcome and celebration for the football team, their families, and members of the local Liverpool community. We’ll also be hearing from Comfort, founder of Comfort Angels and Stu Carrington, the angels’ coach.

At the event we will be bringing together the individuals and organisations working to make Liverpool a welcoming space so we encourage you to stay, chat and celebrate the power of collective action and community!

Doors will open at 2pm and the film (5 minutes long) will be screened at 2.30pm

Food will be provided, along with free juice for children. There will also be a bar for adults.
