In this month filled with sun, warmth and music festival we are offering a rare treat in the form of a brilliant documentary on the most improbable, dynamic, inspiring and uplifitng music band rise to international stardom without artistic compromission.

Benda Bilili are a group of Congolese (DRC) buskers who gather beneath the acacia trees in Kinshasa zoo, where they dream of stardom and a mattress to call their own. This amiable documentary shows how they get there, trailing a ramshackle alliance of middle-aged paraplegics and street kids as they wend their way from African slum to European concert hall.

As usual be there for 5.45 to enjoy our buffet and wines.
