Alnwick Playhouse is raising money by showing the film ‘The Railway Man’ for Freedom from Torture, a charity which helps asylum seekers and refugees who have been tortured.

Helen Coyne, chair of the North East supporters group, said: “Even if you have seen it, it is well worth seeing again; it was very well reviewed and it has a wonderful ending. It is being shown at the request of a superb organisation Freedom from Torture (FFT), which is now among the leading experts world wide on helping victims of torture regain their equilibrium and humanity, and Eric Lomax was one of their first patients.

“The Railway Man”, starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman, is the true story of a man who was a prisoner of war on the Thai/Burma railway and spent the last years of his life in Berwick. It will show at the Playhouse at 6.30pm on Saturday, September 23.
