The Friends of St Neots Museum present a charity fundraising film show for the Museum in the afternoon. They will be showing the dramatic Second World War film Carve Her Name With Pride starring Virginia McKenna, Paul Scofield and Jack Warner, which tells the true story of Violette Szabo G.C. a Special Operations Executive (SOE) agent who flew from RAF Tempsford on her first mission into German occupied France.
The film has been chosen to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War and the 80th anniversary of VE Day (8th May 1945) which is being marked in 2020 with a Bank Holiday on Friday 8th May.
Tickets, at just £10 will be available from the Museum, when it reopens after the annual January closure on 4 February 2020
