THE PLAN tells the story of how a group of unknown British engineers came to be nominated for the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize when they decided to make wind turbines instead of bombs.

At a time when climate injustice is fanning the flames of inequality THE PLAN looks at how this group of eco-pioneering aerospace workers took control for the sake of the planet. Their heroism has been forgotten, but as the climate crisis dominates public debate there’s a vital lesson to be learnt from their story.

This special screening will be followed by a panel discussion including Director Steve Sprung, and former Lucas Aerospace designer Brian Salisbury.

The schedule will run as follows -
1.00pm - 3.00pm - THE PLAN Part 1
3.00pm - 3.30pm - Interval
3.30pm - 5.00pm - THE PLAN Part 2
5.00pm - 5.30pm - Panel Discussion

“This film captures a unique moment in our history - highly skilled workers showing how to turn swords into ploughshares. If we want to transform society, this is a good place to start.”
Ken Loach

“An urgent and gripping piece of work, reflecting on the dark consequences of capitalism on society and proposing an encouraging alternative for a troubling present.”
