Gretna 100 Film Screening

Saturday 21st November 2015
Doors open 6pm, film screening 7pm. Entry by donation

On the 22nd May 1915 the worst train disaster in British railway history left over 200 men from the 1/7th Royal Scots dead.

100 years later, Out of the Blue Arts & Education Trust has developed Gretna 100; a social history project using theatre, storytelling and visual arts to explore the impact of this disaster on the people of Leith.

Come and see two short films from Out of the Blue Drill Hall based film maker Ray Bird; one about the disaster and one tracing the Gretna 100 project. The screenings will be followed by a short Q&A with some of those involved in the project.
