HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and yours.
The Belford Community Cinema returns after the Christmas hols on Saturday 19th January to the Ferguson HalL (DOORS 6.30/7pm start) with a fantastic one-off film event which celebrates the extraordinary women of the North East.
HOWWAY THE LASSES is a special screening presented in association with Belford Museum, and the Imperial War Museum.
The programme includes a selection of films from the IWM collection which features women on the front line in WW1 as well as the work of the Women’s Land Army and the Suffragette Surgeons. These films are very rarely seen and we’re proud to be given the special opportunity to show them on the big screen.
Plus, a documentary by acclaimed local filmmaker Alysoun Sharpe called NIGHT OF YEARS which celebrates the life of Northumberland born Victorian Feminist and social reformer JOSEPHINE BUTLER who campaigned for the right of women to a better education, the end of coverture in British Law, and the abolition of child prostitution. Josephine was born in Milfield and is buried in nearby Kirknewton.
I’d really appreciate it if you could print this off and put this flyer/A4 mini poster up in your window or on any notice boards you have access to. Or forward to your own friends via email, or post on social media/facebook. Anything you can do to help spread the word would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Hope to see you there.
