He asks for so little. Just fear him, love him, do as he asks and he will be your slave... Cavendish Cancer Care, Film Unit and Sheffield Students' Union extend you a very special invitation to join us in the Labyrinth. Following the sad death of David Bowie, his family have encouraged people to use his work to raise money for cancer charities. Cavendish Cancer Care is a local independent charity that offers care and support to cancer patients and their families. They receive very little NHS funding relying on the generosity of the local community to continue offering their free of charge services. They present this screening of the 80s classic. This screening will help raise funds for the charity, so come along, enjoy the Bowie 80s classic film and support a great local Sheffield charity.

Film Unit present this year's Academy Award for Best Picture, Spotlight. The film tells the riveting true story of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Boston Globe investigation that would rock the city and cause a crisis in one of the world's oldest and most trusted institutions. When the newspaper's tenacious "Spotlight" team of reporters delves into allegations of abuse in the Catholic Church, their year-long investigation uncovers a decades-long cover-up at the highest levels of Boston's religious, legal, and government establishment, touching off a wave of revelations around the world.

Tim Birkhead, the author of Bird Sense and The Wisdom of Birds, gives a revealing illustrated talk based on his enthralling new book about the extraordinary creation that is a bird’s egg. Why are they the shape they are? How are the colours and patterns of an eggshell created and which end of an egg is laid first, blunt or pointy end? Firmly grounded in science and enriched by a wealth of observation drawn from a lifetime spent studying birds, A Bird’s Egg is an illuminating exploration of the science behind eggs and the history of man’s obsession with them. Tim Birkhead is a professor at the University of Sheffield where he teaches animal behaviour and the history of science. He has written for the Independent, New Scientist and BBC Wildlife and has won prizes for his books including the McColvin medal. “I think that, if required on pain of death to name instantly the most perfect thing in the universe, I should risk my fate on a bird's egg” – Thomas Wentworth Higginson, 1862.
