Join RTS London for this exclusive screening of Walter Presents’ high-octane look at the dark world of prostitution and human trafficking. Co-Creators Carice van Houten and Halina Reijn will join in person

Please note, this event has now sold out. 

Starring Emmy-nominated Carice van Houten (Game of Thrones, The Fifth Estate, Race) and Golden Calf winner Halina Reijn (Bodies, Bodies, Bodies, Black Book, Valkyrie, Instinct), Red Light is an immersive thriller that portrays how three women's lives unexpectedly intersect when a well-known philosophy professor suddenly goes missing. Sylvia (van Houten), an aging sex worker, runs a brothel with her toxic partner in Antwerp’s Red Light District. Esther (Reijn) is a well-known opera soprano who comes from a well-educated background. Evi (Maaike Neuville) is a cop trying to combine a major case with her role as a wife and mother. Their stories intertwine to liberate themselves from the situations they’re each trapped in.  

Following an exclusive screening of the first episode, there will be a panel discussion and Q&A with stars and series Co-Creators Carice van Houten and Halina Reijn, alongside director Wouter Bouvijn (The Twelve). This event is supported by Walter Presents, the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in the UK, and the Diplomatic Representation of Flanders in London. 

There will be a drinks reception held after the Q&A. Tickets include a complimentary drink after the session.

Red Light launches on Channel 4 on Sunday 9th October at 11pm while the entire box set will also be available to binge via Walter Presents on All 4

About the Show:
Set between Antwerp and Amsterdam, the murder of a young sex worker sparks an investigation into an illegal human trafficking ring with van Houten’s Sylvia seemingly at the helm. Meanwhile, the disappearance of opera singer Esther’s husband prompts the police to uncover his secret lifestyle, much to his wife's despair. With a murderer at large and a missing Dutchman to be found, it is down to Belgian police detective Evi to uncover the truth. As the investigations continue, loyalties are tested, and resilience is paramount under the haze of the Red-Light District. This captivating drama confronts the harsh realities faced by women involved in this taboo world in a nuanced and tasteful way.
