Phillipa Vincent-Connolly and Rebecca Rideal delves into the disability during the Tudor era.

This is an online event hosted on Zoom. Bookers are sent a link in advance giving access.

This event will be live captioned. 

Join Phillipa Vincent-Connolly as she talks to Rebecca Rideal about her new book Disability and the Tudors, and explores the treatment of disabled and infirm people during the Tudor era. She guides us through the social, religious, cultural and ruling classes’ response to disability as it was perceived during the sixteenth century.

Phillipa Vincent-Connolly is a historian and writer who has written both historical fiction and non-fiction and is currently working towards a PhD in History, specialising in disability during theTudor era . Among her many interests is a deep and abiding love for all things historical: archives, artefacts, architecture, corsetry, fashion, and royalty. Phillipa is also a keen activist, wanting untold disabled voices of the past to be heard, by bringing them into the mainstream. Being disabled with cerebral palsy, Phillipa has an interest in disability equality.

Rebecca Rideal is a historian, TV & podcast producer and the author of 1666: Plague, War and Hellfire and the forthcoming God’s Throne: The Rise, Fall and Revolution of the Stuarts, 1603–1714. She is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and the founder and director of history festival HistFest..

Get a CEA card so you can get a free ticket for someone to go with you to the cinema.

When?
January 22, 2022
What time?
9:00 am

5:00 pm
Where?
Flourish shop (Next to Boots), The Swan Centre Eastleigh, SO50 5SG
Details

The CEA card, developed by the UK Cinema Association (formerly the Cinema Exhibitors' Association, which explains the name), gets you a free ticket for someone to accompany you when you visit the cinema and pay the full price yourself. The idea is this person can assist you with anything you need during your visit, but they don't have to be a professional carer – a friend or family member counts too. 

Disabled People’s Voice will be at the Flourish shop in the Swan Centre, Eastleigh (Next to Boots) on Saturday 22nd January 2022.

We have a professional photographer to take your photo.  (This is a fully accessible service.)

We will complete your CEA application form (if you need us to).

We will scan your evidence of your disability to enclose with your photo and application form.

We will even put everything in an envelope and post it off for you.

We expect the whole process to take 10 – 15 minutes of your time.

You will need to:

  • Book, if you want to meet us at the Flourish shop in the Swan Centre, Eastleigh (Next to Boots) on Saturday 22nd January 2022 and we will send you a time slot by e-mail.
  • Bring your proof of your disability. Here is a link to the types of evidence you need.
  • Bring £6 cash or a cheque made out to CEA Card for which we will give you a receipt.
  • Please observe Covid-19 precautions like wearing a face mask unless exempt.

We know that form filling, printing, cheque writing and having an ID photo taken can present particular challenges if you are disabled.  We want to take the hassle out of getting a CEA card so you can enjoy going to the cinema. 

Family, friends, carers, PAs and assistance dogs are welcome to come.

At DPV we like to encourage people with disabilities to meet up and support one another.  We have a monthly newsletter, are on social media and are looking to grow our online community and will ask you to sign up to these things.

Disabled People's Voice is a not for profit organisation run by Disabled People for Disabled People. The idea of this event is to help people with mobility, sensory or neuro-diverse disabilities, who are working age, apply for CEA Cards so they can get a free ticket for someone to accompany them to the cinema.

“Forgotten People, Forgotten Planet” Exhibition

When?
June 3, 2022
What time?
12:00 pm

3:00 pm
Where?
The Ark, Gordon Road Winchester, SO23 7DD
Details

“We all share this planet we call our home.”

Blue Apple’s Special Assignments Company are presenting an immersive exhibition screening, named “Forgotten People, Forgotten Planet”, in the performance space at The Ark, Winchester, on Friday, 3 June, between 12.00pm and 3.00pm. This free drop-in event will also be streamed online and, as it is a durational style screening, can be accessed at any time during the event.

The important and thought-provoking narrative of the climate crisis will be seen through a unique lens, meaning that the conversation can be opened up and made accessible to a wider audience. By sharing stories, art and calls for action, from the point of view of those with learning disabilities — who are often left out of important conversations — it is hoped that the project will challenge and bring the community together as one.

“Look up, think, and act, before it’s too late.”

For further details of this project, and to find out more about Blue Apple Theatre, please
