Fundraising dinner hosted by Rory Bremner

This fundraising event is a unique performance experience and dinner hosted by Rory Bremner, at Central st Martins, at 6pm on 28th September in aid of the Centre for Peaceful Solutions.

The organisation has been given the go ahead for a transformative project in Dartmoor Prison, for which they need to raise £240,000.

To kick this off they are hosting an evening of Live Mediation Theatre on Wednesday 28th September, with Rory Bremner and delicious food kindly provided by Ottolenghi, all at Central Saint Martins in London.

Experience their work and help them to make real, lasting changes, both in the lives of the prisoners they work with and in a wider sense to society, as they address some of the root causes of violence and ‘criminal’ behaviour.

“When I get out in 3 years’ time, I will not go back to my old life. I intend to start a new life with no criminal ties at all. I would like to be part of Peaceful Solutions’ work because you reached me in a way that I now know is the remedy” – Paul

Their intention is to create a culture change on the inside which translates into self responsibility on release so that violence in society is reduced and therefore the number of victims.
