Tue 3rd Feb – The Spirit of 1945 film
1945 was a pivotal year in British history. The unity that carried Britain through the war allied to the bitter memories of the inter-war years led to a vision of a better society. Director Ken Loach has used film from Britain’s regional and national archives, alongside sound recordings and contemporary interviews to create a rich political and social narrative. THE SPIRIT OF ’45 hopes to illuminate and celebrate a period of unprecedented community spirit in the UK, the impact of which endured for many years and which may yet be rediscovered today.
We are thrilled that Ken Loach will introduce the film from 19:15 – 19:45 with the film starting at 20:00 and a discussion at the end of the film how to get the Spirit of 2015 happening. Arrive early to avoid disappointment!
Doors open at 6:45, donations are asked for at the door and delicious and healthy food is available at the bar.
