Tonight’s screening includes an introduction from the script’s writer Terry Deary (Horrible Histories).
‘GREAT NORTH: A Run, A River, A Region’ tells the story of the Great North Run in the context of the changing social, cultural and industrial landscape of the North East. A lot has changed since 1981, but like the Run itself, the region keeps moving forward.
The film connects the experiences of real runners with incredible archive footage that brings those memories to life. Narrated by award winning local actress Gina McKee, it also includes interviews with local legends including; Sam Fender, Alan Shearer and Ant & Dec.
The project, funded by a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant, will shine a light on the region, its places and people, through the story of the Great North Run.
