It’s 1950s Britain, & single mother Lydia (Holliday Grainger) is abandoned by her husband. When she meets the local doctor, Jean Markham (Anna Paquin) a friendship develops. A close friendship, or something more?

As part of LGBTQ History Month 2020 (just a few days late!), join us on Wednesday March 11, 6.30, for a free screening of Tell it to the Bees, followed by author Fiona Shaw in conversation with Jacky Collins about why she wrote the novel, and what the film made of her story.

Bring your questions, voice your thoughts. Stay for a drink and continue the discussion afterwards.
