Vintage Leicester at the Silent Film Festival


There was a good turn out for Vintage Leicester, a fascinating programme of rarely seen silent films of Leicester and Leicestershire which shown as part of the 13th British Silent Film Festival on Sunday 11th April at Phoenix Square Film & Digital Media Centre.

These vintage treasures included Leicester Poor Boys and Girls Summer Camp at Mablethorpe, an advertising film for Winn’s Cafe in Leicester; the 1912 Melton Mowbray Horse Show and a selection of topical budget newsreel items of local interest that included the testing of a new fire engine in Leicester.
