Did you miss our screening of "The Spirit of '45" with Whitby Film Society?
There's another chance to see this widely acclaimed documentary by director Ken Loach at The Church Rooms , St. Thomas Church, Glaisdale. There are only 30 seats in this cosy venue, so advance booking is recommended, but you could take a chance and turn up on the evening....!
"Never again, it was believed, would we allow poverty, unemployment and the rise of fascism to disfigure our lives. Ken Loach's impassioned documentary illuminates and celebrates a period of unprecedented community spirit and unity in Britain which gave rise to the welfare state and the NHS. Maybe it's time to remember it again."
"Ken Loach's nostalgic homage to the birth of the welfare state and Beveridge spirit is salutary for our age of austerity"
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
"Passionate and deeply personal but done with Loach's usual humane intelligence as well as a patient elegance of style. It made me cry."
