English Literature at the movies

The Roses Theatre Tewkesbury has for many years run a varied film programme, and is one of Gloucestershire’s top venues for independent, art house and world cinema. This winter, supported by funding from the British Film Institute, a series of guest presenters, including University of Gloucestershire academics, will accompany film screenings and lead Q & A sessions with audiences afterwards.
