A public screening of archive film of the Canterbury area discovered during research by Tim Jones on amateur filmmaking. The films reveal the changing face of Canterbury and the surrounding area from the 1930s onwards and give an insight into the development of amateur filmmaking. The screenings are interactive in nature, providing an opportunity for the audience to share their knowledge of the local area.

This screening included rare footage taken at Bekesbourne Aerodrome in the 1930s, George Lansbury MP opening a section of the City Wall in 1931 and a 1970’s comedy made by Canterbury Architecture students.

Public Screening at Canterbury Christ Church University on 25 Feb and 11 March 2017
