The Breadwinner (2017)

For International Women's Day

Parvan is an 11 year old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001. When her father is wrongfully arrested, Parvana cuts off her hair and dresses like a boy in order to support her family. Working alongside her friend Shauzla, Parvana discovers a new world of freedom and danger. With indaunted courage, Parvana draws strength from the fantastical stories she invents, as she embarks on a quest to find her father and re-unite her family.

The film will be shown with subtitles.

Admission is free; donations welcome. Members only, but you can join at the door.

The bar will open at 7 pm, and the film starts at 7.30.

Saturday 9 March

Black Snow Roadshow

8 pm; doors open 7.30

£8 (tickets from the bar, from early February)

This is a 90 minute show with music, poetry and song built around a multi-award winning short documentary about the Oaks Mining Disaster of 1866 and recent efforts to erect a memorial to it.

The explosion at the Oaks Colliery, Barnsley was the worst industrial disaster of the 19th century in the world, and remains Englands worst, but hardly anyone knows about it.

This show has been widely performed, including at the Edinburgh Fringe, and has won a host of awards. We are lucky to have a chance to see it in Glossop.

**Not to be missed! **
