The Box + film 'No Surrender'
This is a story of life on the East Hull docks in the 1970’s. This fictional tale is rooted in the banter and the cargoes of that time. Across Britain, industries were struggling to adapt to new technologies and, with containerisation, the Hull docks were in the front line of these challenging times. This is the era of Wilson, Heath and Mike Yarwood; the three day week and labour unrest across steel, mining and the docks at home and the Vietnam war overseas.
Afterwards we will be showing exerts from Rupert Creed's film, 'No Surrender'. No Surrender is a film about a century of Hull’s waterfront told through the history of the city’s dockers.
