BAFTA Children's Hospice Screenings

BAFTA Cymru Christmas Hospice ScreeningsBAFTA/ Huw John

A series of film screenings for children with life limiting conditions held throughout the UK.

Now in their sixth consecutive year, the BAFTA Children’s Hospice Screenings are a UK-wide series of special screenings for children with life limiting conditions and their families, made possible by the fundraising efforts of BAFTA members who ran the Virgin London Marathon.

Each event is specially created with the needs of the families in mind, with venues being made exclusively available to the guests in order that the families feel comfortable in their surroundings. All venues have wheelchair access and all events include seasonal activities and entertainment to create a really special event.

I just wanted to thank you for arranging such a fantastic morning at the cinema to see Cinderella for all of the families who use the Hospice (Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice). It was such a treat for us to get out as a family and it was Emily's first trip to the cinema and I can wholeheartedly say that she loved it!   Being able to make precious family memories is so important to families like ours. Thank you :-)”  The Ryan Family, Belfast
