Fran Higson’s film United We Will Swim… Again about the 14 year long struggle to save Govanhill Baths has started a tour of the UK, screening at swimming pools, community centres and other events across the country.  Fresh from the premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, the tour kicked off on Saturday at Templemore Baths in East Belfast.  This weekend there will be two separate screenings in Manchester, at Withington baths and Victoria Baths and one in Leeds.  From there the tour goes to Oxford, London (twice), Brighton and ends in the West Country at the Tolpuddle Martyrs Film Festival.

There will be a tour of Scotland in the autumn reaching out to other campaigns and self-organised community groups.  Fran is hoping that the film can inspire other communities and campaigns to organise and fightback, if you are interested in screening the film in your area contact her at
