    An Evening of Historic Films Featuring the Holme Valley.

    Presented by Yorkshire Film Archive

    Wednesday 15 March at 7.30pm.

    Yorkshire Film Archive presents a delightful selection of nostalgic films from the Holme Valley area. Footage will include the changing face of the Holme Valley from the 1930s to the 70s, Holmfirth in Wartime, Market Day in Holmfirth in the 50s and scenes of local mills as they were demolished. In addition there will be historic Bamforth sketches made at the turn of the 19th century and the remarkable film of Holmfirth’s pet tiger, Fenella.

    The footage will be specially curated by the YFA’s Steve Morley, who will take the audience on a journey as seen through the lenses of both amateur and professional filmmakers.

    Entrance Charge £5.00.
