St Ann’s event at Lakeside Arts Centre poorly organised
A film and Exhibition about St Ann's left a small number of local residents exasperated today when the Sharpe's Coach driver who picked people up from the St Ann's Valley Centre, refused to return anyone back to St Ann's afterwards. Instead locals were being dropped off in upper Mansfield Road!
Therefore four St Ann's residents walked off and did not go to the event because they say the bus trip was badly organised.
"A spokesman for Sharps Couches said "The organisers have given us instructions to drop people off in Mansfield Road afterwards, and not back to St Ann's, so we are just following their directions."
The event at the Lakeside Arts Centre, University Park, looks at the 1969 film 'Gimme Shelter' by Stephen Frrears which looked at the poverty in St Ann's before the slum clearance programme of 1971. The film is being shown in conjunction with the Arts Centres' Saturday Night Sunday Morning exhibition.

Nottingham University,1967). Introduced by Stephen Frears (tbc) with Bill Silburn and Lisa McKenzie.
