Free Screening: Phenomenal Futures presents… What’s Love Got To Do With It (18) – Bonington Theatre, Arnold, 7.00pm

October 2023 is Domestic Violence awareness month which gives an opportunity to raise awareness and understanding of Domestic Violence and the damaging impact on the lives of individuals affected by this hidden crime.

Local community organisation Phenomenal Futures are grateful  to be able to host a screening of the film What’s love got to do with it? which showcases the true story of the abuse suffered by the legendary singer Tina Turner at the hands of her first husband Ike Turner. Tina was a truly inspirational woman who went on to leave behind her abusive past and become one of the most successful female recording artists of her generation.

Phenomenal Futures is committed to further developing the ground-breaking work carried out by award winning local charity We R Here by providing new initiatives working with survivors of domestic abuse and their families to promote recovery and support the process of moving from surviving to thriving. We R Here are delighted to be able to partner with Phenomenal Futures in this transitional work.

This event is part of the “Phenomenal Women” empowerment project and a short talk will be given prior to the screening to introduce and celebrate stories of restoration and hope with true life testimonials of Survivors who are finding their way with the right help and support to take hold of a Phenomenal Future.

We will be honoured if you can join us for the free screening of this most powerful and impacting film showcasing the survivor story of a true icon.
