Riding a Dream (double bill with Wadjda)

Free (No ticket required - First come first served)
2:00PM (Doors open 1.45pm)
INDOOR: The Green Community Centre, Nunhead Green

 

In 2019, a documentary team followed the extraordinary journey of Khadijah Mellah who made global headlines and sporting history by becoming the first British Muslim woman to ride in and win a British horse race. 

Watch 18 yr old Khadijah Mellah as she embarks on the greatest challenge of her life yet. The young woman from Peckham will go from novice rider at Ebony Horse Club to professional as she gears up for a ride in the prestigious Magnolia Cup at Glorious Goodwood.

The Ebony Horse Club in Brixton is unique in London – a riding school in one of the UK’s most disadvantaged communities. It uses young people’s interaction with horses as a tool for social change. This sense of inclusion, responsibility and structure gives young men and women the ability to develop confidence and better decision making in their own lives. https://www.ebonyhorseclub.org.uk/

This will be followed by a screening of the feature film Wadjda.

The Green is Nunhead’s new community centre. Their aim is to create a lively, flexible space that is available to all members of their community. They want the centre to be known by all, used by most and frequented by many. The centre is managed by Nunhead’s Voice – a local community group for the people of Nunhead. The group works to bring people together from across the community; organise and promote community events; help source funding for community activities; and let people know what’s going on locally.

How to get to The Green. P12 and 78 buses stop close by – alight at Nunhead Green or Barset Road. Walking distance from Nunhead Station. From Peckham Rye Station, walk to Nigel Road bus stop and it’s a short hop on the P12 or 78 or walk through to Nunhead Green along Scylla Road.
