Another chance to see film

Another chance to see unique footage of Worcestershire, from times gone by..

Following the success of previous year's unique film showing of 'Worcestershire on Film'. The Archive & Archaeology Service will be repeating last year's popular event again.

'Worcestershire on Film' is a screening of archive footage from the vaults of Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service and the Media Archive for Central England.

Over three thousand  people have already attended previous screening sessions in the series, but many more have been unable to get tickets.

This year's showing will coincide with the Queens  Jubilee Celebrations and will feature  a special additional clip of home cine from 1977s Silver Jubilee parade in Crowle.

The film will show also footage of the flooding at Kidderminster; cricket at the County Ground in Worcester (in colour) which includes a visit by the touring West Indies side of May 1957; a busy day at the Three Counties Show of 1955 (also at Worcester before it moved to Malvern).  There will also be  transport material including local canals and the building of a bypass at Ombersley as well as a 1940s training exercise for the Bewdley fire brigade. 

Paul Hudson, Learning & Outreach Manager, said, "We're pleased to be able to reshow this collection of films again for those who couldn't come last time. It will be another great evening viewing bygone eras. Many times people recognise friends or relatives and there's always a buzz as people reminisce."

The screening will take place at the Swan Theatre on Monday June 4 (Bank holiday Monday) at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £6 and can be booked from Worcester Live box office, 01905 611427.
