Mr Calzaghe - London Film Premiere

Super middleweight Joe Calzaghe hung up his gloves and retired from boxing in 2009 with an undefeated record as reigning world champion. But just how did the Welsh-Italian lad from an impoverished background go from being bullied viciously to the International Boxing Hall of Fame?

This intimate documentary charts the many ups and downs of an outstanding sportsman who, against all odds, managed to take down the best boxers that America and the rest of the world could throw at him.

Mr Calzaghe explores the close relationship between Joe and his father/trainer Enzo, who both somehow managed to sail through the cut-throat world of boxing with their health, sanity, and fortune intact.

Ticket only,

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

To mark a year since Nelson Mandela’s death, the international aid agency CAFOD is hosting a special free screening for young adults of the BAFTA-nominated film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, followed by an exclusive question and answer session with the film’s award-winning director, Justin Chadwick. This will take place at the May Fair Hotel on December 11th at 7pm (doors open at 6:30pm).

Apartheid in South Africa may be history, but there is still much injustice around the world – something that CAFOD seeks to address through its work.

Date: 11 December 2014 from 7pm
- 10pm (doors open at 6:30pm)
FREE (tickets must be booked in advance)
Venue: The May Fair Hotel, Stratton Street, London W1J 8LT
