Centenary of the end of the First World War
Journey’s End – feature film for Remembrance 2018
Saturday 10th November – 7.30pm (doors open 7.00pm)
March, 1918. C-company arrives to take its turn in the front-line trenches in northern France led by the war-weary Captain Stanhope (Sam Claflin). A German offensive is imminent, and the officers (Paul Bettany, Stephen Graham Tom Sturridge) and their cook (Toby Jones) distract themselves in their dugout with talk of food and their past lives. Stanhope, meanwhile, soaks his fear in whisky, unable to deal with his dread of the inevitable. A young new officer, Raleigh (Asa Butterfield), has just arrived, 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…

We have been granted permission to show a free screening of this film in aid of Combat Stress.
Combat Stress is the UK’s leading charity for veterans’ mental health. The majority of those leaving the Armed Forces go on to lead fulfilling and rewarding lives. However, there is a small but significant group who develop trauma-related mental health problems and struggle to leave the battlefield behind. We at Combat Stress believe that this group of men and women deserve our help in their hour of need. When a veteran asks for our help, we develop a personalised programme of treatment to suit their individual needs, but we need help to safeguard the services we provide across the UK. Demand remains high with over 2,000 new veterans reaching out to us for help each year.
Recent changes to our NHS England funding means that we are now 80% reliant on voluntary income, instead of 60%. We need your help to support every former serviceman or woman who needs our unique mental health treatment.
