Event description

Description

THE SCAR
(Amber Collective, Tyneside, 1997, 114mins, 15)

Having been actively involved in Easington, particularly with the Women against Pit Closures, during the 1984 Strike, Amber Films returned to make a film combining actors with many members of the Easington community. The Scar is a powerful tribute to working class women in the aftermath of the Miners’ Strike. Like many women active during the strike, May has been left to clean up the mess. Struggling with a failed marriage, two unruly children, and the onset of hot flushes, May is just about holding things together when she meets Roy, the new manager of an open cast mine. Roy brings a degree of humour and warmth long missing in May’s life, but is he truly the answer to her problems?

+ SONG FOR BILLY

As hort film commemorating the death of Billy Hogg at Easington Pit.

TRANSPORT & PARKING

We have a variety of options available:

For those travelling from Tyneside there is the option to buy a ticket which includes transport via bus from and to Newcastle. It will leave Newcastle at 6pm and leave the farm at 11:30pm. (SORRY NO LONGER AVAILABLE)

As Thorpe Lea East Farm is in quite a remote location, down a country track, through farmland, there will also be a hop-on-hop-off minibus service provided for local residents and those travelling by car who wish to park in the main village.

The minibus will depart from from Dene Avenue, Easington Colliery SR8 3N5, from 6.15pm - 6.45pm and leave the venue from 11.30pm to midnight.

You are welcome to come in your own vehicle, but the farm track is very bumpy and onsite parking is limited, with priority given to overnight campers. You are welcome to park in the main village (car left at drivers own risk) and jump on the mini bus mentioned above. If you do want to bring your vehicle onsite, please call 0191 5271331 or email thebarnateasington@hotmail.com to check for availability before purchasing a ticket.
