On Thursday 18 June, 3.30pm, there will be a screening of the filmed version of the Ballad of the Cosmo Café, based on the sell-out live performances held at St.Peter’s Church Hall, Belsize Park, London, last November.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the play’s director Pamela Howard and others with direct memories of this almost legendary café on the ‘Finchleystrasse’, haunt of many a refugee from Nazi Europe, namely, Marion Manheimer, whose parents ran the real life Cosmo, actor Jack Klaff and Etan Smallman, whose grandfather was manager of the café.
