- Opera "Silk Moth", 1 November, 20th Century Theatre: Each year an estimated 5,000 women worldwide are murdered by their own families in ‘honour killings’, 12 of them here in the UK. Silk Moth places onstage a Mother. This one-woman performance raises powerful questions: what is her role in this horrific ‘tradition’? Is she a victim, submissive, or coldly complicit? More information available at: www.rbkc.gov.uk/subsites/nour/events/performance2015/silkmoth.aspx

- The "6th London Iranian Film Festival", 30 October- 7 November, various locations, screenings at various times: www.rbkc.gov.uk/subsites/nour/events/film2015/liff.aspx
