Military Wives – Free Bealtaine Movie
25th May @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
One event on 25th May 2022 at 8:00 pm
The inspirational story of friendship, love, and support. A group of women come together as their partners serve in Afghanistan. Together they form the very first military wives choir, helping each other through some of life’s most difficult moments and also becoming a media sensation and global movement in the process.
Singing and the feeling of community through the formation of a choir are at the core of the film Military Wives and as public singing was not allowed for so long during the pandemic, it is a celebration of the collective joy of being able to coming together to sing again.
