Brand New Year @ Seven

After closing for 5 days to clean, decorate and fit a brand new coffee machine, Seven re-opens with a new season of events, starting Monday 11 January, 8pm, with a Screen Seven showing of the very moving film,Testament Of Youth. Vera Brittain overcomes the prejudices of her family and hometown to win a scholarship to Oxford. She falls in love with her brother’s close friend Roland Leighton as they go to University to pursue their literary dreams. But the First World War is looming and as the boys leave for the front Vera realises she cannot sit idly by as her peers fight for their country. £6 / £5 conc.
On Tuesday 12 January, 8pm, CafĂ© Scientifique looks at Air Pollution. Many Asian cities are beset by smog and although our air is much cleaner, the recent VW diesel engines scandal has highlighted the pollution that we are exposed to in the UK. Introduced by Dr James Lee of the National Centre for Atmospheric Science at York University. Hat Donations.

Seven Live - Chapel Allerton’s #1 Music Night, has its first outing on Wednesday 13 January, 8pm, replacing Seven Unplugged.

Doors 7pm.

On Saturday 16 January 8pm, Seven presents Replay, a dark and thought-provoking comedy. Four teenagers wake up in Limbo and find themselves at the mercy of a childish deity. Will they be able to return to the lives that they have left behind? Written by seventeen-year-old actor and playwright Jae Macpherson and performed by local young actors. £3 on the door.
