Talk at Preston Historical Society – December

On Monday 3rd December at Lune Street Methodist Church I will be giving my first public lecture on Will Onda. After over 4 years of digging in archives and reading old newspapers with the help of Peter Vickers, I will give a short but hopefully fascinating insight into an early pioneer in the cinema and film industry from his time as a acrobat to his development as a ‘recorder of our modern age’ and film distributor.

More details can be found on Preston Historical Society website
