Screening to mark the film’s 10th anniversary and the 40th anniversary of the UK miners’ strike – Pride is the star-studded, deeply moving story of a group of London-based gays and lesbians who lent their support to striking coal miners in Wales in 1984.


It’s the summer of 1984 – Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is on strike. At the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decides to raise money to support the families of the striking miners. But there is a problem. The Union seems embarrassed to receive their support.


But the activists are not deterred. They decide to ignore the Union and go direct to the miners. They identify a mining village in deepest Wales and set off in a mini bus to make their donation in person. And so begins the extraordinary story of two seemingly alien communities who form a surprising and ultimately triumphant partnership.
