Ken Loach Q&A at home of Durham miners

Director Ken Loach is coming to the home of the Durham miners for a screening of his acclaimed new film.

Sorry We Missed You is a powerful exploration of the contemporary world of work, the gig economy and the challenges faced by one family trying to hold it all together.

The two-time Palme D’Or winner will take part in a Q&A at a special screening at Redhills: Durham Miners Hall on Thursday 5 December.

Proceeds from the event will go to The Redhills Appeal, the campaign to renew the home of the Durham Miners Association (DMA) as a centre for heritage, culture and education.

Set in Newcastle, the film by writer Paul Laverty and the team behind I, Daniel Blake, is both an intimate family drama and an angry, meticulously researched indictment of a callous, inhumane economic system.

The screening will begin at 7pm on Thursday 5 Decemeber. Doors open at 6pm and refreshments will be served in the Committee Room. Parking on site at Redhills is limited and restricted to blue badge holders only. Nearby on street parking is free after 6pm. Redhills is a short walk from both Durham railway and bus stations.

The 15-rated film runs for 100mins and will be followed by a Q&A with Ken Loach. 

Tickets priced £15 are on sale now here.

All proceeds to The Redhills Appeal, the DMA campaign to renew Durham Miners Hall as a centre for heritage, education and culture.
