In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty at the hands of a malevolent slave owner, as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon's chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist will forever alter his life.

    sorry had a headache all day :-( can't shift it, will have to miss this tonight. Also worried about high winds and rain later so not good for me travelling down M5.

    February 7, 2014

    • Sheree Rice R.

      Sorry to hear that Paula. Yes probably the best decision not to attend tonight. Take care & catch up soon x

      February 7, 2014

    • Paul B.

      Shame but probably best to avoid the M5 when it's stormy! Look forward to meeting you another time.

    Hi All, I've answered 'yes' to the RSVP but I'm really a 'maybe' as it's touch and go as to whether I can get there on time. Hope to see you tomorrow, otherwise I'll catch up with you at another event :-)

    Hi all
    Sheree is still feeling poorly (but will hopefully still be coming) so I will be taking over as host for this event, I think meeting in the lounge bar upstairs is probably the best idea. I'll hang out there until everyone has arrived, my number is[masked], don't text/ring to pre order your drinks unless you are buying mine as well ;-)

    I'm handing the reigns over to Paul to host this one as I'm still sick. Hopefully I can make it tomorrow evening, better to prepare just in case I do not.
    If I cannot make it, enjoy the film, apparently excellent & hopefully see you soon. :)
