The Grosvenor Cinema and Changing Faces are delighted to be teaming up to deliver a very special preview screening of Wonder with a special Q&A on the 29th of November. The screening will raise funds for Changing Faces, a charity which aims to provide caring and empowering support to those with disfigurements. After the film, please join us in the mezzanine of the Grosvenor Cafe next door.

Wonder, which is based on the New York Times bestseller by R.J. Palacio, tells the inspiring and heart-warming story of August Pullman, a 10-year-old boy with facial differences attending a mainstream school for the first time.

Rob Murray, Changing Faces’ Scotland Manager says:
“Reaching children when they’re young and taking them on that Wonder journey, so that they learn to value difference is so important. If every school in the country ran a Changing Faces or Wonder workshop and heard from someone like August, then we’d be a step closer to a society that doesn’t judge people based on their appearance.”
The event will also include a Question & Answer session with Lucy Ritchie. Lucy grew up in Glasgow and is now studying at University in Aberdeen. Lucy has Treacher Collins, which has affected her appearance but not her drive to live an active and engaged life. She’ll be answering any questions the audience might have around disfigurements and the issues raised in the film.

The Grosvenor is delighted to host this event which we hope will further the great work of Changing Faces as they continue to advocate for every person who has an unusual appearance to be able to live their life without the anxiety or fear of being ignored, physically or verbally abused, harassed, or restricted.
