Disability Awareness Month – Film at the Folk Hall presents Peanut Butter Falcon with Hands and Voices Performance

The Next Film at the Folk Hall is here, this time in celebration of Disability Awareness Month!

The Peanut Butter Falcon is an adventure story set in the world of a modern Mark Twain that begins when Zak, a young man with Down syndrome, runs away from the nursing home where he lives to chase his dream of becoming a professional wrestler. Through circumstances beyond their control, a small-time outlaw on the run, becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally. Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whisky, find God, catch fish, and convince a kind nursing home employee with a story of her own, to join them on their journey.

We’re grateful for funding from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and Housing Trust to bring this special event for Disability Awareness Month to you at a reduced fee!

We are also being joined by the fantastic Accessible Arts Media, Hands and Voices group for a special performance and a short film!

Hands and Voices was established in 1997, as one of the first singing and signing choirs in the UK. The choir was set up to help people with learning and communication difficulties take part in music and express themselves creatively. Hands & Voices is led by a vision that everyone should be equally valued, celebrated and challenged. The choir is very much led by its members and it’s a place where lifelong friendships are formed. And where you hear a lot of laughter!

They will be doing a short workshop where a couple of their members will teach you to sing and sign a feel-good song!
