The film “EMBRACE”  –  The Engine Shed  York Road, Wetherby  – Doors open 6 pm. 

Concerns over having the right body image is an issue which affects both boys and girls, whether its accepting unrealistic body images,  the notion that being a certain weight determines whether you’re healthy, excessive “Photoshopping” of body images or in particular the objectification and sexualisation of women and girls.

For one night only the film “Embrace” will follow the body image activist Taryn Brumfitt’s crusade as she explores the global issue of body image and how it impacts each and every one of us, and inspiring us to change the way we feel about ourselves and think about our bodies.

Doors open at 6 pm with various retail stands available and the film starts at 7:30 pm.

Tickets costing £10 per adult, (you can bring a teenager in for free with each adult ticket), are available from Castlegate stationers in the Wetherby Market place, or on the Eventbrite website with an additional booking fee.

Supporting the event will bring nearer the provision to all secondary schools of a study guide to work with young people around this emotive issue.
