Photos from our first preview screening of ‘Eyes of St John’ at Twickenham Film Studios

Following the completion of ‘Eyes of St John’ for St John of Jerusalem Eye Hospital Group, we hosted our first preview screening at Twickenham Film Studios.

The charity’s work depicted in this film spurred the interest of a number of friends and guests of Vanessa Redgrave and Carlo Nero who attended our event.

It was a successful night bringing together a variety of people and opening up an interesting discussion after the screening.
