Govanhill Baths Community Trust presents a screening + Q&A of Sleaford Mods – Invisible Britain, which shows the most relevant and uncompromising British band in years sticking two fingers up to the zeitgeist and articulating the rage and desperation of those without a voice in austerity Britain.

The film follows Sleaford Mods on a tour of the UK in the run up to the 2015 General Election, visiting the neglected, broken down and boarded up parts of the country that many would prefer to ignore.

Part band documentary, part look at the state of the nation, the documentary features individuals and communities attempting to find hope among the ruins, against a blistering soundtrack by Sleaford Mods.

Tickets: £5 / £2 concessions

“If you’re angry about the bullying ruling bastards and you give even half a toss, you have to watch this film.”
Maxine Peake

“A vital document of a vital band in vicious times, Invisible Britain makes you despair and rejoice in equal measure.”
Louder Than War

“It’s refreshing to see a rock documentary that so deliberately avoids the usual cliches.”
The Guardian

“Undoubtedly, absolutely, definitely the world’s greatest rock n’ roll band: Sleaford Mods.”
Iggy Pop
