Arctic Convoys weekend in Cambridge Day 2
December 16, 09:30 - 11:00| Free
Free Screening followed by Q&As with British war veterans
A one-off chance to watch a series of short films created by Cambridgeshire schoolchildren with the help of with Independent Film Trust) about the Arctic Convoys and their role in World War II: the teams of ships that sailed through the Arctic from the UK to Russia delivering life-saving supplies.
This project involved schoolchildren from local Cambridgeshire schools, including Russian-speaking children from Cambridge Russian School and Cambridge Russian Academy. They were inspired by meeting and conversation with Arctic Convoy veterans and visiting wartime archives in the Churchill College.
After the films, there will be Q&A with the veterans that sailed the ships.
