Govan Banners Screening at Kinning Park

Events + Festivals

Seniors at KP Cinema Club

A big thanks to Michael, Liam and Laura Jane at the KPC Social Cinema Club for making us feel very welcome at the screening of “The Govan Banners” on Tuesday night.

By great coincidence we had Sheila and Ernest in the audience – two young people from Spain, who had come to the Complex for a yoga class, but decided to stay for the film instead (sorry, yoga teacher). After the screening, Ernest shared his own family stories and they informed us that they had not been aware that people from Scotland had gone to fight fascism in the Spanish Civil War. We had an interesting and heartfelt discussion and by the end of the night the group had gained yet another group of young fans.

  1. Hello
    I’m a fellow PhD student of Laura-Jane at the University of Glasgow. A collegue and I are involved in a similar research project with union and coopeartive banners from in and around Glasgow going back to the mid 19th century. We’re at the early stages of the project and would very much like to meetup with you guys for a chat about your work with the Govan banners. My contact details are below.
