Laura is also screening 'Stories From The She-Punks' directed by Gina Birch (The Raincoats) and Helen Reddington (The Chefs) and a Q&A on Thursday July 4th at Akedo Gaming Bar in Lincoln.

This documentary considers the women who played instruments in punk bands in the 1970s including accounts from the Adverts’ Gaye Black, Palmolive from The Slits and Jane Munro from The Au Pairs, as well as many others.
