The screening will be followed by a Q and A session with filmmaker David Brooks, and afternoon tea will be provided.
Cost: Members $10, Non-members $15
Venue: Brighton Historical Society, 1st floor, Bayside Arts and Cultural Centre
Fifty-five years ago an extraordinary book, A History of Brighton, was published. It created ripples never felt before and possibly never to be repeated in Australian history circles. The author was Weston Bate, a veteran crewman in the RAAF and a greatly loved master at Brighton and Melbourne Grammar schools.
