WHAT'S ON THIS WEEK

There’s one Christmas film that gives you that warm, festive feeling – and it’s back at Gala Durham this week. It’s A Wonderful Life a must-see for the whole family at Christmas. It tells the tale of a man whose life seems to be falling apart when Clarence, an angel with one change to prove his mettle, teaches George just how much life is worth living. An uplifting story that will make you laugh, smile and cry all at the same time.
