Join us at the spacious Maketank in Exeter City Centre for a socially-distanced screening of the new film by artist and researcher Debbie Robinson.

To keep everyone safe we are releasing just a handful of timed tickets for each screening.

Please note: Unfortunately there is no accessible toilet at Maketank. There are accessible toilets approximately 50m away at St Stephens House.

Maketank is a large disused commercial space located at street level with toilets on the 2nd floor. Seating will be spaced and face coverings required (unless exempt) in line with the latest government guidelines.
