At a time of intense public activism both at home and across the globe, explore the varied and fascinating history of public protest in the UK with our new archive film: Britain on Film: Protest!

From a 1910 suffragette demonstration to striking coal miners in the Rhondda Valley, from female CND protesters spanning the Tamar Bridge to the defeat of fascists at London’s Cable Street, this absorbing, illuminating collection examines the nature of protests large and small and for causes regional and national, by participants fighting for suffrage and democracy, against exploitation and inequality, for fair wages and worker’s rights, for public safety, freedom and community and in the face of war and oppression.

Please note that these screenings are for those aged 65+ only
