The team will also be delivering a number of free activities and workshops which will run after each film, suitable for 5-12-years-old.

Metamorphosis is a peer driven and peer delivered lived experienced charity and non profit organisation working in Lancaster and beyond.

Their aim is to tackle barriers with unhealthy relationships with alcohol and other drugs.

Their flagship project, Open Cinema, was designed to help prevent relapse by connecting people with recovery needs to people with recovery assets.

The team aims to transform the lives of people in recovery from harmful health behaviours through the power of cinema. They provide free access to film screenings and film related events for people to socialise and support each other.

Over the past 10 months we have shown 83 films to over 1800 people whose lives have been affected by substance misuse issues.
