A fascinating insight into Bristol at work, and at leisure, in past times.
Bryan Haynes, one of the last of the travelling projectionists, invites you to share some of the highlights of his moving picture archive – a lifetime’s collection numbering almost 2,000 film shorts.
The ‘Bristol At Work’ section includes a remarkable film of Fry’s chocolate factory, made in 1937. It is enhanced by the present day memories of ex-employees. You will also enjoy a special aviation feature, including a promotional film on Concorde, and a look back at the Port Of Bristol.
After the intermission, ‘Bristol At Leisure’ includes a Redland tennis tournament sponsored by Wills and featuring Billie Jean King, a tribute to the Women’s Institute and a 1973 road safety film made in Kingswood. And a wonderful film depicting the early days of the Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust.
Relax and enjoy the show!
