Brief Encounter on Valentine’s day

Brief Encounter
Join us this Valentine’s day at the Station Pub, Staplehurst Road SE13, the perfect setting for a series of films celebrating railways, trains, stations, railtracks, the very reason Hither Green exists.

First film of the series is the 1945 British classic Brief Encounters, which appropriately is about railways and romance. The film will be followed by a pub quiz, including some special film rounds. The film starts at 6pm.

After this first film, the rest of the program will be written collaboratively.
Is there a film about trains or railways that’s dear to your heart and you’d like us all to watch together?
Then submit your proposal, make a convincing case and we will choose from the pool of films on offer in the forthcoming weeks.
Just like a domestic scramble for the remote control, only of neighbourhoodly proportions!

Entrance is £3, participation to the quiz is £2.
Book your seat by emailing or by calling on 07956 614007.
