Doynton Big Screen

Doynton Big Screen will be back on Saturday 9th September when we will be showing A United Kingdom.

The film is based on extraordinary true events. 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 neighboring 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.

As always there will be a bar and we'll be serving a three course meal, entry is £7 a head (not £5 as shown in the poster). To book a table and to ensure a ticket please call me on 0117 9372084.

All proceeds will be going to The Village Hall to help fund a new screen and projector so future screening can be even bigger and better.

Doors open at 7.30 on Saturday 11th Feb and the film starts at 8pm

All proceeds will be going to the charity 'East African Playgrounds', click here for further info.
