Archived Friday 9th November 2018 - MARKET DAY MATINEE - JOURNEY'S END - at The Alexander Centre

Tickets £3.60

March, 1918. C-company arrives to take its turn in the front-line trenches of norther France, led by the war-weary Captain Stanhope. With a German offensive imminently approaching, the officers and their cook use food and the memories of their lives before the war to distract themselves, while Stanhope soaks his fear in whisky, unable to deal with the dread of the inevitable.

A young officer, Raleigh arrives fresh out of training and abuzz with the excitement of his first real posting - not least because he is to serve under Stanhope, his former school house monitor and the object of his sister's affections. Each man is trapped, the days ticking by, the tension rising and the attack drawing ever closer...

As we mark the centenary anniversary of the end of the First World War, and just before Remembrance Sunday, this film based on the 90 year old classic play is a timely reminder of the human stories behind the horrific statistics.

Cast includes Asa Butterfield, Sam Claflin, Paul Bettnay, Toby Jones, Tom Sturridge and Robert Glenister.

Tickets available on the door or in advance by calling 01795 591691 of emailing
