tram pictureIn response to popular demand, Colchester Film Makers Club has been asked to stage a second public film show in aid of Cllr Gerard Oxford’s Mayor’s Charity Fund.

An appreciative audience saw a programme of short documentaries, themed “Colchester Through the Ages – a filmic trip down memory lane”, at Firstsite recently.

The films, which ranged from Colchester during the Great War to the building of the Southway, were from the club’s large archive, spanning almost 60 years.

The next public screening – featuring an entirely different set of films but with a similar theme – will be held on Monday 16 April at Firstsite, starting at 7pm.

Tickets can be obtained from Evenbrite - the Mayor - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , price £5.
