The Angel of Passchendaele film screening

Posted on 30 September 2018 05:48 PM by Kevin Trickett

Join us for another chance to see The Angel of Passchendaele - a film about Nellie Spindler, the nurse from Wakefield who was killed at the Battle of Passchendaele during World War I. Tickets cost just £5 per person.

Back in July, we screened two films at the Theatre Royal Wakefield: Futility and a new educational film, The Angel of Passchendaele, as part of a special premiere evening which also included a presentation and some spoken word performances by pupils from Wakefield Girls' High School.

Approximately 200 people attended but there was tough competition from a certain World Cup match playing the same evening. We have therefore arranged a repeat screening of the two films.
