Taking a Holiday – a film about war resistance in South Bristol during World War 1.

The amazing story of the secret beneath a Bedminster bike shop. A tale of struggle in wartime – full of intrigue, escapes, comradeship…and bikes. What does it mean to be a refugee and on the run in your own country? Who will give you a bed for the night, a job… or a means of escape?

Puppetry, documentary material and songs combine in a narrative based on the true stories of ordinary Bristol people during 1914/17, and the hidden history of resistance to the war machine.

Following the screening the makers of the film will share some of their broader research about war resisters in Bedminster.
