The group will be showing Lady in the Van with hot drinks and refreshments available at the Campus Cafe.

Lady in the Van will be shown on Friday, March 11 at 7pm.

Tickets are £5 /£3.50 from Reception, Mearns Community Campus (01561 378298), online at or on the door.

A poster for the showing said: “Starring Maggie Smith and Alex Jennings, the film tells the true story of the relationship between Alan Bennett and the singular Miss Shepherd, a woman of uncertain origins who ‘temporarily’ parked her van in Bennett’s London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years. Their unique story is funny, poignant and life-affirming.”

As a special treat, on Wednesday, March 9, at 1pm there will be an Alan Bennett talk by the Advanced Higher English pupils and their teacher, Mrs Vicky Craig. This is an excellent opportunity to hear the young people enthuse about an author and share what they have learned. This event is free at Mearns Community Campus, with refreshements.
