Refugee mothers to star in film at Brent’s boutique cinema

Group hold weekly stall at Queen’s Park farmer’s market

A short film about a refugee catering company will be shown at Brent’s boutique cinema, The Lexi, tonight (Friday, September 9).

Spice Caravan was set up by refugee parents and holds a stall at the weekly farmer’s market in Salusbury Primary School, Queen’s Park.

Somalian Ayan Hassan, 30, of Cambridge Road, South Kilburn, is one of the stars of the film and said she will wear traditional Somali dress to the premiere.

She said: “We cook food mainly from African countries. “Everyone brings their own recipes unique to where they are from. It has really brought people together.
