The week ahead at the Frontline Club: First Wednesday and a special screening of Blood and Dust

Tomorrow evening’s First Wednesday is fully booked but the discussion will be broadcast live here from 7pm.

On Sunday we have a special screening of Frontline Club founder Vaughan Smith’s new film on Afghanistan Blood and Dust. Sunday lunch will be served in the Club room at 12pm and 2pm and tickets are available for both the screening and a two-course lunch for £20.

A panel will be discussing gay rights in Africa and the men and women who seek asylum in the UK to escape persecution as a result of their sexuality next week. Part of a BBC World Debate filmed in South Africa will also be shown.

On Monday we will be screening Life with Murder; part psychological study, part investigation, the film looks at the repercussions of a terrible crime upon a family that not only had to deal with the loss of their daughter but also the conviction of their 20-year-old son for her murder.

We have also confirmed that the Egyptian writer and commentator Ahdaf Soueif will be joining us at the Frontline Club on 30 March.
