Saturday 2nd April Collecting Midlands Media Treasures Event at The Public West Bromwich


This Saturday, 2nd April Full Circle Senior Curator – Kay Ogilvie will be at The Public in West Bromwich. This is a special event to celebrate and share rare and unique moving images of The Black Country, jointly hosted by the Media Archive for Central England (MACE) and The Public.

We are looking for groups to join us in the search for film to help unearth some hidden treasures of our screen heritage.

Film and videotape have recorded images that are crucial to our understanding of the last 100 years and home movies especially have the capacity to reveal our way of life like no other records.
