Nurse Edith Cavell (1939)

Friday 26th November 7:30pm at the John Clare Theatre

British nurse Edith Cavell (Anna Neagle) is stationed at a hospital in Brussels during World War I. When the son of a former patient escapes from a German prisoner-of-war camp, she helps him flee to Holland. Outraged at the number of soldiers detained in the camps, Edith, along with a group of sympathizers, devises a plan to help the prisoners escape. As the group works to free the soldiers, Edith must keep her activities secret from the Germans.

An exciting screening for Peterborough as Peterborough’s connection with Edith Cavell goes back to 1884, when she was enrolled as a pupil teacher at Laurel Court School in Peterborough Cathedral Precincts.
