cinema, thurs 29th sept – dark horse

dark-horse-1024--(None)A wonderful, charming documentary directed by Louise Osmond which tells the story of Dream Alliance, the prize-winning thoroughbred racehorse which was reared by a small group syndicate, led by barmaid and ex-dog breeder Jan Vokes, in Wales. The film shows how Dream Alliance was raised on a small allotment in Blackwood by the group and, against all odds and in defiance of his humble background, went on to win the Welsh National in 2009 before competing in the 2010 Grand National Aintree. Starts at 8pm, free entry
