One of the most memorable events of the early stages of the Great War is the timely subject of the Friends of Sutton Life Centre’s film night on Friday 28 November.

Joyeux Noël, the story of the Christmas Eve truce which briefly silenced the guns of Flanders, is director Christian Carion’s visually sweeping account of the true-life wartime event which briefly silenced the guns of Flanders. The film was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2005 Academy Awards, and was Ian Richardson’s last appearances before his death in 2007.

Joyeux Noël, PG13, starts at 7pm at Sutton Life Centre, Alcorn Close, Sutton SM3 9PX. Refreshments, £3 (£2 for Friends of the Life Centre).
