What is truth? Is it opinion or fact? Are there many truths? If so, is one greater than the other? So many philosophical questions that pub dwellers have debated on many a Friday night, from ancient greek times to this very day. From watching the news and engaging in social media in recent times, it is clear that truth is something that should be challenged and that is what the Northumbria University Collective’s (Un) Truth Festival on Saturday 27th April intends to do.

The event challenges notions of truth by presenting a range of interpretations of current issues through film and music performances. The line up include BAFTA nominated filmmaker Tina Gharavi screening her film I Am Nasrine and People like Us, along with screenings from Molly-Jo Gordon, Sammy Gray, Alex Underwood, Thomas Wesley, Daniel Appleby, plus many more artists soon to be announced.

Ending the evening will be a music and poetry performance from Ettrick Scott, founder of Jazz Riot and one of the most honest performers in the North-East.

Doors are 4.30pm and the festival takes place between 5-9pm at The 2nd Floor of Commercial Union House 2, ‘Good Space’. Tickets are available now and free to book, however, this is a pay what you feel event and there will be a donation box to pay what you feel the event was worth.
