Yard Works on Film – coming very soon!

My film show on the Yard Works is coming together. It will include a screening of Will Onda’s masterpiece The Cotton Industry. I am also loving the newsreels provided courtesy of British Pathe. Thanks to Alan Buchanan and Geoff Senior for helping me put the show together. There are still a few places left – it is on 9th September and starts at 7.30pm. To book ring 01772 905414 or click here for details.
