A Charmed Life in demand

The screening of ‘A Charmed Life’ will be shown in east London next month due to high demand.

Following the resounding success of the Young Black People and Resillience Conference which screened a clip of A Charmed Life, interest in the film called for the full screening to be scheduled.

The screening will be hosted on Wednesday, May 26 from 7pm at The Hartley Centre, 267 Barking Road, London E6 1LB.

Places are limited, so if you would like to book a place for the free film screening, please email Keshia Harvey at by May 19.

Film Screening : A Charmed Life – 64 mins on Saturday 14th November at 2:00pm

Join our special screening of a documentary film charting the life of Eddie Martin Noble (1917-2007), war veteran and writer, with special guests, Diane Abbott MP, writer and director, Patrick Vernon, writer Erica Myers-Davis, Denise Noble, daughter of Eddie Noble and Marika Sherwood, historian, writer and chair of Black and Asian Studies Association (BASA). The film looks at the personal histories of members of the UK Caribbean community as they come to terms with the post-WW2 reality of Britain.

In this fascinating film the story of Eddie Noble along with stories and experiences of other war veterans from the Windrush generation becomes a story for us all and one that inspired the books, Small Island by Andrea Levy and Island Songs by Alex Wheatle.

The event will highlight the Caribbean contribution in respect of WW2 Remembrance Day and the launch of The Charmed Life Campaign in encouraging more work to record the oral history of war veterans and the Windrush Generation.

Tickets £5.00 via box office 0207 928 3232 or online at
