Join us as we lift the lid on UK immigration detention in the UK. We’re joining forces with our friends at Ice and Fire to bring a live stream of their Detention Dialogues theatre event to your sofa! These are important stories that need to be shared, and we hope you’ll join us.

As an ice cream company with a strong history of standing up for our values, we love justice and equality almost as much as we love cookie dough and caramel swirls. And the more we learn about the very flawed system of immigration detention in the UK, the more we want to shout about it. But we know that the people who can say it best are those who have experienced detention themselves. This is where Ice and Fire come in — their documentary theatre performances are a chance for you to hear first-hand accounts from those who have experienced immigration detention centres.

You don’t need to have any prior knowledge to join this event — just an internet connection!

Tickets to this event are FREE, but they won’t last long. Find out more and sign up here.
