Britain on Film (‘Rural Life’)

8pm Start

 

Britain on Film (‘Rural Life’) – BFI compilation of short documentary films from the 1940s, 50s and 60s, showing aspects of life in the British countryside

Rural Life charts the changing countryside and rural life, highlighting activities, pursuits and traditions still surviving today, as well as customs, trades and skills that have since dwindled or disappeared. Viewers can enjoy a whistle-stop tour of Scotland’s lochs and mountains in 1924, learn about ‘Hot Coppers’, the 150-year-old-custom – now extinct – once practised in the ancient town of Beaumaris (1929), explore Northern Irish countryside – tranquil and beautiful even as the Troubles rage elsewhere – and see a youthful Gloria Hunniford performing in 1986, there is also a rare glimpse from 1946 of the now globally threatened bird, the mistle thrush

 

 


 

 

 

CLUB HISTORY


From an initial start at the end of September 2012, using a borrowed projector and screen we have now painted the whole end wall of the upstairs room at The Club and with the generous help of the Street Fair Committee been enabled to buy a full HD/1080 Blu-Ray capable LCD projector, our own Blu-ray player, speakers and a small mixing desk.  We have also been kindly given by Air-in-G a huge 8 foot wide transportable screen.  As with the marquees owned by the Street Fair, we will make the set up available for use in the village for other fundraising events.  In the last few years since we began showing films we have run a Gaza Benefit evening – which raised over £750, a fundraiser for Ebola victims, given money to the Football Club and Brownies, Girl Guides & Newnham Earlybirds – to mention but a few.
