After a long farewell spread out over three years, it seems Brexit will finally happen on 31 January 2020. But before we wave goodbye to our British friends, we will continue our series Anarchy in the UK, a series of typically British film screenings in de Doelen Studio on three Sunday afternoons in January.

The screenings start around 15:00 hours, but you are welcome from 14:00 for a nice cup of tea (with or without milk), some biscuits and a beer. Let’s raise our glasses to the United Kingdom and its pop music, literature, art, humor, TV and of course, films.
