Common Ground: Film Screening

21st October 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us at MacDonald Road Library for an afternoon hearing all about life at Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp. Hear songs and stories that bring the camp to life as we reflect on the impact of the camp 40 years on. 

We will be screening Women Against the Bomb Sonia Gonzalez’s prize-winning look at the impact of the Greenham Women, reflected through interviews and footage from women who took action and never looked back.  

Please note this film is free to attend but you can reserve your ticket here!

About Common Ground 

Common Ground is a series of events bringing the legacy of Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp to local communities across the UK. It is part of a project created by Scary Little Girls in collaboration with Greenham Women Everywhere CIC to map the impact of the Peace Camp on the women who inhabited it and the communities they returned to. This project has been made possible thanks to support from the Heritage Lottery Fund. 

About Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp 

Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp was an enduring and iconic protest spanning 19 years from 1981 – 2000. Whilst the occupation of the common began with the aim of forcing out the US nuclear warheads from Berkshire, the protest became a focal point of feminist history and has left a legacy of women’s liberation around the world. You can view our archive of oral histories, photographs and ephemera from Greenham here.

Inclusion and Accessibility 

Common Ground strives to be an inclusive and welcoming space which celebrates diversity in all its forms. Our approach is to learn from and value each other’s lived experience. 

If you have any access needs you’d like to speak to us about please email us.
