Do you have to complete a self assessment tax return by 31st January 2019?
Are you worried about the deadline?
Do you have questions about how to complete it or what costs you can claim?
The deadline for submission of the 5th April 2018 self-assessment tax returns is 31st January 2019. If you answered "yes" to the above questions, then this workshop is for you!
Every year thousands of people fail to submit their self-assessment tax returns and suffer thousands of pounds in fines.
Likewise people continue to miss out on tax savings by not making perfectly allowable claims against their income.
 We are keen to support small businesses as much as possible to make sure that they don’t suffer additional costs or stress. 
 With you in mind, this workshop will cover the basics as well as provide individuals and small business the ideal platform to ask and receive answers to all those questions surrounding completion and submission of self-assessment tax returns.

The Workers Cup: Documentary film screening and directors’ Q&A
Eventbrite.co.uk
6:30pm - 8:30pm


The University of Bath is hosting a screening of The Workers Cup, an award-winning documentary film set inside the migrant labour camps of Qatar, where the FIFA World Cup will be held in 2022.
The screening, which is funded by an Innovation in Learning and Teaching Award from the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, will be followed by a student-led Q&A session with Director Adam Sobel and Producer Rosie Garthwhaite.
Through unprecedented access to a Qatari labour camp, this character-driven documentary follows a group of migrant workers from Nepal, India, Ghana and Kenya who are labouring to build the stadia that will soon be graced by the star athletes of the so-called ‘global game’.
It follows the harsh realities of their lives as they work exceedingly long hours for scant salaries, living in isolated labour camps which are by law kept outside city limits. But after the launch of a ‘workers welfare’ football tournament, they are invited to play together in the same stadia that they labour to build each day.
Offering a complex window onto the lives of migrant workers as they endure as the lowest class in the world’s richest country, the film explores themes of hope, masculinity, migration and inequality, reminding us of how sport, in all of its agony and ecstasy, can serve to unite and divide society in equal measure.
Speaker profiles
Adam Sobel is a filmmaker who has produced television and journalism around the Middle East for outlets including The Guardian, CNN, and ITN. In 2013, Adam directed a series on Mount Everest following the first woman from Saudi Arabia to reach the top. Sport’s role in society is key to Adam’s work, and The Workers Cup is his feature-film debut.
Rosie Garthwhaite is the Executive Producer of Mediadante. In 2015, the Emmy-award winning Escaping ISIS she developed for Channel 4 was referenced by the UK Prime Minister. In 2014, she executive produced a CINE Golden Eagle series following the first Saudi woman up Everest. She is the author of the award-winning book How to Avoid Being Killed in a War Zone.

Pencil To Paint: Sep - Dec 2018
Eventbrite.co.uk
26th September - 5th December


“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
The theme for this particular 10 week Pencil To Paint course will be 'still life' and we will look at how artists from Caravaggio to Cezanne used tonality, form and colour to compose their paintings.
Topics will include:
Mark-making
Line, measurement and proportion
Notān
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 - 18:00
Wednesdays:  26 September; 03, 10, 17, 24 ,October; 07, 14, 21, 28 November; 05 December  - 10 x 1.5 hour sessions)
