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 unique footage of flooding in Sturry in 1927, the opening of Kent and Canterbury Hospital by the Duke of Kent in 1937 and the Great Storm of 1953.

Public Screening at Canterbury Christ Church University on 30 April and 28 May 2016
