VENUE: West End location

Hailed as a remarkable, ground-breaking work during two sell-out runs at the National Theatre, the feature film adaptation of LONDON ROAD reunites the award winning team, with script by Alecky Blythe, music by Adam Cork and directed by Rufus Norris (Broken).

LONDON ROAD documents the events that shook Suffolk in 2006, when the quiet rural town of Ipswich was shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women. The residents of London Road had struggled for years with frequent soliciting and kerb-crawling on their street. The film follows the community who found themselves at the epicentre of the tragic events. Using their own words set to an innovative musical score, LONDON ROAD tells a moving story of ordinary people coming together during the darkest of experiences. 

The film features an ensemble cast that includes Olivia Colman, Clare Burt, Rosalie Craig, Anita Dobson, James Doherty, Hal Fowler, Kate Fleetwood, Linzi Hateley, Nick Holder, Claire Moore, Michael Shaeffer, Nicola Sloane, Paul Thornley, Howard Ward, Duncan Wisbey and Tom Hardy.

Do you sometimes feel you are talking at cross purposes with male colleagues, or uncomfortable about asking for what you want, or frustrated that your views are being ignored? It is true that men and women communicate differently. The issue for professional women is that for centuries, the male way of doing things has been the benchmark. Numerous studies show men interrupt women more than they interrupt other men, and both men and women think women talk too much. As Mary Beard so succinctly put it, “we have not yet learned how to hear the authority in woman’s voices.”
Jane C Woods, a personal development specialist for women and CEO of has worked with many women suffering a crisis of confidence at work, much of which can be traced back to this issue – how to communicate effectively with men and not get talked over in meetings. Jane will share tips and techniques with you at our very practical seminar, where you will learn how to be a more effective communicator without behaving like a man or compromising your femininity.  And you can share your own experiences afterwards over a glass of wine.
