Play your part in the local Living Archive

EVER dreamed of being on the silver screen? Now is your chance!

People’s history project, Living Archive, has organised two free evenings of film focusing on local life captured on camera by the people who live it.

Not only will audiences get the chance to spot faces and places they remember, Living Archive is also inviting them to search attics and cupboards for their own home movies from yesteryear.

Among the gems on screen will be footage from the Newport Pagnell and Bletchley carnivals, sports days, the construction of the M1 and a football match in Bletchley where players included the disgraced media magnate Robert Maxwell.

“It’s going to be great fun for people, enjoying again events and places they remember the first time around, and perhaps even spotting themselves,” said Living Archive’s Colin Barrett.

The first film night takes place at the United Reform Church, Newport Pagnell, on Friday April 20 from 7.30pm.
