Llandogo Village Hall April Film Night is on Fri 20th April. Doors open at 7 and the film will start at 7:30pm, with a licensed bar. Entry is £4.

This will be our last film night for a few months. Film night is the third Friday of the month but due to the River Festival in May, a wedding in June and the Village Show in August these Friday evenings are not available. Film night should start again in September.

May/June 1940. 400,000 British soldiers are holed up in the French port town of Dunkirk. The only way out is via sea, and the Germans have air superiority, bombing the British soldiers and ships without much opposition. The situation looks dire and, in desperation, Britain sends civilian boats to try to evacuate the beleaguered forces.

This is that story, seen through the eyes of a soldier amongst those trapped forces, two RAF fighter pilots and a group of civilians on their boat, part of the evacuation fleet.

The fantastic cast includes Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy.
