Palmer Building, Whiteknights campus of Reading University, Shinfield Road, RG6 6UR, Reading
As this is a School Night this Meetup is for the film only. If anyone fancies a drink and a chat after the film then there's a bar on campus that's open to the public that we could go to.
Meet from 7.30pm to 7.45pm for 8pm start.
What's the film about?
Ken Loach notches up another Palme d’Or with his latest, maybe his last, film – an uncompromising and universally powerful view of the effect of “Austerity UK” on ordinary folk who find themselves on the wrong side of bureaucracy. Those of us who can afford a cinema ticket may never find ourselves in such straits, but we should stand as witness to the picture of social ills that Loach draws from real-life incidents.

The Reading Film Theatre website has information on how to get to the Whiteknights campus by car or bus, as well as a map showing where the Palmer Building is located on campus. You can find that information here.
Where to Meetup
As you go into the Palmer Building you'll see a staircase approximately in the middle of the room. Just to the left of the stairs is the entrance to the Film Theatre. Let's meet just to the right of those stairs.
