London Fundraiser & Reception
An Intimate Night in Support of GROOMED


September 6, 2018 | 7pm-10pm


The Groucho Club, 45 Dean St,
London, England W1D 4QB


Please join Gwen van de Pas and her husband Laurens-Jan Olsthoorn on September 6th in the Groucho Club, London, for an intimate night in support of GROOMED, an upcoming documentary on sexual abuse.

GROOMED follows Gwen’s grueling journey as she searches for answers about the man who sexually abused her as a child, and finally seeks justice after decades of silence. In a desperate need to understand her ongoing traumas, she interviews sex offenders, psychologists and survivors across America. The film addresses a type of psychological manipulation called ‘grooming’, how to recognise it and - ultimately - how to stop it.

There has never been a more critical time to raise our voices against those who abuse their power and pressure us into silence.

Bites, drinks and music will be provided!

To RSVP, please email GROOMED Associate Producer Josie Gleave at
