NORWICH 1945 to 1960: A Journey from Austerity to Prosperity

2 weeks to go

Last year we enjoyed a talk by Frances and Michael Holmes on Norwich Market, this year they are coming back to talk to us about Norwich 1945 – 1960 A Journey from Austerity to Posterity, which is the title of their latest book. They are very entertaining speakers and much in demand so we are fortunate to have them back with us in March.
 
A talk by FRANCES and MICHAEL HOLMES
illustrated by pictures and sounds from that era
Join them for a trip down memory lane . They will bring back a time
when after years of war the City was rebuilt and regenerated; when
City workers made shoes and chocolate; when Teddy boys added colour
to the City and youngsters danced the night away at the Samson &
Hercules. A trip which will take you from the rationing of the post-war
years to a time when we ‘never had it so good’

BREATHE 115 mins 12A Drama/Biography/Romance
This month we are showing BREATHE. When Robin (Andrew Garfield) is struck down by polio at the age of 28, he is confined to a hospital bed and given only a few months to live. With the help of his wife's twin brothers (Tom Hollander) and the ground-breaking ideas of inventor Teddy Hall (Hugh Bonneville), Robin and Diana (Claire Foy) dare to escape the hospital ward to seek out a full and passionate life together - raising their young son, traveling and devoting their lives to helping other polio patients.

“Part exuberant love story, part great escape adventure, this is an old-fashioned tale of triumph over adversity that refuses – like its protagonists – to succumb to confinement. I honestly can’t remember the last time I laughed and cried so much at the same movie.”
Mark Kermode

The club will only exist if you want it to and keep supporting it. So please keep coming, enjoy a glass of
wine and meet your fellow film critics!
