Event Details

Join us for a special intimate screening of the award winning documentary Sonic Sea.

Sonic Sea takes the audience on a journey. It explores how the ocean is a collection of sounds that are vital to the ‘way of life’ (quote by producers of Sonic Sea) for its inhabitants and how industrial and military noise is impacting on whales and other marine life. The documentary follows ‘former US Navy Officer who changed forever the way we understand our impact on the ocean’ (quote by producers of Sonic Sea).

‘We are pleased to announce special guest speaker Molly Gadenz, Training Officer with leading waterways charity Thames 21, who will give a brief talk on some of Thames21’s work to protect London’s rivers.

Thames21 reconnects people to nature by helping them enjoy, protect and enhance their local rivers in the Greater London area. Whether it’s the Thames or one of its many tributaries, Thames21 offers inspiring ways for communities to get down to their local riverbank. We run education and training programmes, run research programmes, campaign on issues and create environmental enhancements such as reedbeds to improve water quality and soak up pollution. Of course we also run many clean-ups during the year across the capital, free for all to join. Rivers, canals and stretches of open water are the perfect antidote to urban living – which is one of the reasons thousands of volunteers help us rewild and protect them every year. Our aim is to rebuild the relationship between communities and their rivers; restoring river health and boosting wellbeing and community cohesion in the process’

Sonic Sea was produced by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Imaginary Forces in association with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and Diamond Docs. Learn more at www.sonicsea.org.

The screening of Sonic Sea has been organised in collaboration with the local community, who acknowledging RFSK’s close proximity to the Thames, felt it was the perfect venue to hold a screening about marine life.  In 2006, the now famous Thames Whale became lost in the river…it was the first time the species had been seen in the Thames since records began.

Tickets are £3.50 (£4.30 with booking fee) and can be booked here. Seating is limited so book early!
