Legal Advice Forum Manchester 5.3. 18.30 Uhr

Anmeldung auf Eventbrite



Are you an EU/EEA national living in the UK? Worried about your rights and options post-Brexit?

Although the legal status of EU/EEA nationals in the UK will not change until the UK concludes its exit from the European Union, the government has so far refused to guarantee our rights.

Can we take any steps now to safeguard our futures? Join us for an evening of advice about Permanent Residency, Settled Status, Citizenship and how they may apply to you.


6:30PM – Doors, Introduction by Maurizio Rodorigo, INCA UK

6:40PM – Presentation by Victoria Sharkey, Immigration Lawyer

7:00PM – Q&A


Victoria Sharkey

Victoria Sharkey

Level 3 OISC immigration adviser. Victoria has practised immigration law since 1998. Initially with a London based private immigration firm, where she specialised in work permit applications for IT professionals.

She subsequently spent 18 months in India working with several multinational IT firms, moving project workers and their families to the UK, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.

What topics will be covered?

What is the proposed “Settled Status” and the permanent residency (PR) document? What paperwork will I need? What will they cost?

What if I was a student / unemployed / out of the country / on maternity leave during my time in the UK? Can I still apply?

Am I eligible for citizenship / naturalisation?

Is this a free event?

There is small charge to attend the event. The charge covers part of the organisation of the event. If you are not able to afford the fee, please contact us. A ticket will be allocated to you.

I’m not an EU/EEA national. Can I still come?

Yes, we are happy for British nationals with good intention of supporting their EU friends to come and attend the evening!

Can I bring my own questions?

Yes, there will be a Q&A session after the talk.

Can I come and complain about how terrible Brexit is?

THIS EVENT WILL NOT BE A POLITICAL FORUM. As upset as we EU/EEA nationals may be by the result of the referendum, this evening is designed to offer legal advice.

Beyond the Battlefields – Fotografien von Käthe Buchler – Ausstellung in Manchester 2. Februar bis 1. März

Join us for the exhibition launch of a unique series of images made by photographer Käthe Buchler (1876-1930) in Germany before, during and after World War One, which are part of the collection of the Museum of Photography in Braunschweig – where Buchler lived and worked.

Buchler’s exquisitely posed portraits and landscapes are the vision of a respectable, bourgeois wife and mother, a pillar of her community with significant technical expertise and a remarkable (and little known) aesthetic vision; she was an early adopter of the ‘Autochrome’ process, the world’s first colour photographic process.

Buchler’s photos during the Great War examine the care of orphaned children and wounded troops. Images of children as an integral part of the war effort provide a remarkable insight into the war’s impact on their everyday lives. Together with a fascinating series entitled ‘Women in Men’s Jobs’, they provide a remarkable window on the preoccupations of ordinary Germans, living and working hundreds of miles away from the fighting.

Exhibition runs 2 February – 1 March 2018

BBC Radio 4: Nick Baines in Wittenberg

Der anglikanische Bischof von Leeds Nick Baines war am Sonntag in Wittenberg und hat dort einen Gottesdienst geleitet. Mitwirkung des Schauspieler Julian Sengelmann und der Reformationsbotschafterin Margot Käßmann

Ansehen auf BBC iplayer

On October 31st 1517 Martin Luther is said to have posted his 95 theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg. It was the spark that lit the Reformation and led to the transformation of Europe. It led to revolutions in theology, politics, education, language and music. It also led to bitter divisions in church and society and to wounds which have yet to heal.
The Bishop of Leeds, Nick Baines, leads this act of worship from Wittenberg. He is joined by the well known German actor and singer Julian Sengelmann who is seeking to engage young people in discussion about what Reformation might mean today. The leaders of both the Protestant and Roman Catholic churches offer their perspectives and the sermon is preached by former Lutheran Bishop and Reformation Ambassador, Margot Kaessman. Music includes Luther’s plaintiff setting of Psalm 130, Out of the depths I cry to thee O Lord and his most famous and confident hymn Ein fest Burg ist unser Gott. (A Mighty Stronghold is Our God.)
