Hub Screening | Starsuckers: SECOND SCREENING
Wednesday 3rd March
Hub Islington, 6.30-10pm
Premiered in the 2009 London Film Festival and heralded by the Sunday Telegraph as “Thrilling” and “Revolutionary”, Starsuckers exposes the toxic effect that the media and celebrity are having on our world. Filmed in secret over two years, Chris Atkins (of award-winning Taking Liberties) and his production team posed as tipsters, making up stories for the tabloid press and seeing how far they could get. Chris will be joining us to introduce the film, and for Q/A at the end.
Hub Drop in | Fairtrade Fortnight
Thursday 4th March
Hub Kings Cross, 11-4pm
An very informal celebration of Fairtrade Fortnight at The Hub King’s Cross, we invite you to come and drink some free fairtrade tea, and watch some short films on the Fairtrade industry, including insights into the important areas of tea and coffee, fruit, and cotton production. Guest speakers to be confirmed.
Attendance is free – email [email protected] for more information or call 020 7841 8900.
Hub Screening | Cinema Paradiso
Thursday 4th March
Hub Kings Cross, 7-9pm
Hub Kings Cross has a lovely big screen and for a while we’ve wanted to start a cinema club. We are naming the series Cinema Paradiso, with, you guessed it, Cinema Paradiso being the first film. We will gather recommendations as we go and show as wide a selection of films as possible. The venue will hop between Kings Cross and Islington.
This will be a very chilled evening and a great way to wind down and miss the evening rush hour. We are going to keep it very casual, so friends and family are all welcome, bring a picnic basket or we will order in pizzas. I am going to keep the bar open just in case, but you are more than welcome to bring your own wine.
Attendance is free! RSVP to [email protected] with the subject: Booking – Cinema Paradiso.
Hub Lunch | HemPower
Friday 5th March
Hub Kings Cross, 1-2pm
Founder of Brixton-based AMARU Rebekah Bloom will tell the story of Hemp, its journey and produce. She’ll also bring a range of HemPower products to try and buy. HemPower Organic Human Bio-Fuel – a unique blend of Organic Shelled Hemp Seed and Organic Oats – is unique, ready to mix and prepared in under one minute using only hot water.
Come, learn and sample all over lunch!

Hub Feast | in partnership with Food Stuff
Wednesday 31st March
Hub Kings Cross, 7pm
On the last Wednesday of every month, Food Stuff and the Hub host a feast. The invitation is for people who love food, cooking it, talking about it and most of all, eating it, to come along with both an open mind and a dish to share to eat with people that feel the same.
An informal evening with a very loose agenda, we hope to create a feast where conversation about food, life, love and everything in between, can flow freely.
If you are interested in joining please get in touch with Eleanor at Hub Kings Cross ([email protected]) or Holly at Food Stuff ([email protected]).
