Brief Encounter, Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard 

Noël Coward wrote a play about an affair...written with such empathy, such observation, and such tender agony. This man knew what he was writing about. Imagine being gay in the 1930s and you begin to understand ‘Brief Encounter’ (Emma Rice). 

Celebrate LGBT History Month and enjoy popcorn, snacks and a glass of something while watching the film. 

Explore the film through archive material and a short talk by the Noël Coward Project Archivist.
