'Steel Chest, Nail in the Boot and The Barking Dog' screening

"Steel Chest, Nail in the Boot and The Barking Dog" is a 1986 documentary telling the story of Belfast's shipyards through the stories and songs of those who made their living there. The film's title is derived from the colourful nicknames of those that worked the shipyards, filling them with stories.
Join EastSide Partnership and Northern Ireland Screen to watch the film at Templemore Baths and to take a turn at remembering the shipyards. The film will be presented by Bronagh McAtasney, Outreach & Access Officer from NI Screen. Sam Guthrie, Heritage Engagement Officer, and Bronagh McAtasney will be on hand to facilitate a reflection session after the film.
EastSide Partnership aims to activate Templemore Baths with a series of memory events to encourage local residents to come together to reflect on life in East Belfast. Tea and coffee will be available. The event is free, but donations are encouraged to facilitate further events.
We encourage you to bring your loved ones and attend with them!
