FLICKS IN THE STICKS AT GORSLEY VILLAGE HALL Thursday 20th April 7.30 p.m. – ‘A United Kingdom’ (cert. 12A)
In 1947, Seretse Khama, the King of Botswana, met Ruth Williams, a London office worker. They were a perfect match, yet their proposed marriage was challenged not only by their families but by the British and South African governments. The latter had recently introduced the policy of apartheid and found the notion of a biracial couple ruling a neighbouring country intolerable. South Africa threatened the British: either thwart the couple or be denied access to South African uranium and gold and face the risk of South Africa invading Botswana. The running time of this film is 1 hours 51 minutes, so there will be no interval.
Admission (at the door): Adults £5.00, Children (under 18) £3.00. Discounted tickets (Adults £4.50, Children £2.50) can be purchased in advance from Gorsley Post Office & Stores or Tony Beckwith (01989 720358 firstname.lastname@example.org).
As usual, tea, coffee and biscuits will be available and you are welcome to bring your own drinks (glasses provided). The doors will be open from 7.00 for those that would like to meet up with friends for a drink and a chat before the film.
