A group of people aged 11-19 who live on and around the estate have created a documentary which seeks to understand what the estate was like and how it has changed.

The screening is free, doors open at 5.30pm and the film will begin at 6pm.

A free coach will leave the For All Healthy Living Centre, in Lonsdale Avenue, at 4.55pm.

The first 100 people to reserve tickets will receive complimentary ice cream.
