We're excited to be showing the amazing Blood Road this Saturday evening as part of our Women's Weekend! The film will be shown inside the centre at 5.30pm and the cafe will be open for refreshments. The film is included as part of your women's weekend ticket but please note spaces are first come first served so be sure not to miss out! 

Blood  Road follows  the  journey  of  ultra-endurance  mountain  bike  athlete  Rebecca  Rusch  and  her  Vietnamese  riding  partner,  Huyen  Nguyen,  as  they  pedal  1,200  miles  along  the  infamous  Ho  Chi  Minh  Trail  through  the  dense  jungles  of  Vietnam,  Laos,  and  Cambodia.  Their  goal:  to  reach  the  site  where  Rebecca’s  father,  a  U.S.  Air  Force  pilot,  was  shot  down  in  Laos  more  than  40  years  earlier.  During  this  poignant  voyage  of  self  discovery,  the  women  push  their  bodies  to  the  limit,  while  learning  more  about  the  historic  ‘Blood  Road’  and  how  the  Vietnam  War  shaped  their  lives  in  different  ways

Start time: 5.30pm
