Union Events at Engine Room

prideA couple of events this week with a Union flavour to them are being sponsored at Bridgwater’s ENGINE ROOM in the High Street.


On Thursday 25th February there will be a special benefit screening of the BAFTA award winning comedy ‘PRIDE’ which was released in 2014 and tells the true story of a London based group of gay and lesbian activists involvement in the 1984 Miners Strike and their attempts to raise money to support strikers families in a small South Wales mining village. The event is sponsored by the Rail union RMT as part of LGBT history month and will be introduced by David ‘Dai’ Donovan, the Welsh miner whose story the film tells.
The film starts at 8pm and tickets cost £5 with £3 concessions and are available from the Engine Room.
