Join us at Thimblemill Library for an evening hearing all about life at the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp. Hear songs and stories that bring the camp to life as we reflect on the impact of the camp 40 years on.

Greenham child and author Rebecca Mordan will introduce her book ‘Out of the Darkness: Greenham Voices 1981 – 2000’  sharing the impact her early experiences of the camp have had on her life. There will be chance for you to ask any questions during a Greenham Q&A.

Following this there will be a screening of Carry Greenham Home as we transport you back to the early days of Greenham with Beeban Kidron and Amanda Richardson’s fly-on-the-wall masterpiece was shot whilst they lived at Greenham in 1982-83.

About Common Ground

Common Ground is a series of events bringing the legacy of Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp to local communities across the UK. It is part of a project created by Scary Little Girls in collaboration with Greenham Women Everywhere CIC to map the impact of the Peace Camp on the women who inhabited it and the communities they returned to. This project has been made possible thanks to support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

About Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp

Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp was an enduring and iconic protest spanning 19 years from 1981 – 2000. Whilst the occupation of the common began with the aim of forcing out the US nuclear warheads from Berkshire, the protest became a focal point of feminist history and has left a legacy of women’s liberation around the world. You can view our archive of oral histories, photographs and ephemera from Greenham here.
