any members and local residents turned up to see the exhibition of old photographs and archive film.  MACE/Full Circle curated a nostalgic collection of films about old Nottingham and Arnold featuring an Arnold wedding from the 1930s as a  highlight of the screening.

A good local crowd turned up to watch the archive footage

The archive film was complimented by an exhibition of old photographs put together by Lambley History society and members of the public helped identify some of the people shown in the photographs.As a result of the ‘call out’ for films, two people brought along their films to be deposited with the Full Circle project. These will be copied onto DVD for the owners and Lambley History Society so that another film screening day can be organised and the films shared with the community.

John Hardy deposits his film with Full Circle

We are all fascinated by film that John Hardy deposited. John wasn’t really sure what was on it but the brief title on the can indicates the 8mm cine film is about the Hardy farming family, floods, sheepdogs working sheep, milking and the Savages Garden Party.

No event would be complete without a nice cup of tea!If you have any films or moving image that you would like to share with the community please contact Kay Ogilvie senior curator for Full Circle on kay.ogilvie@tiscali.co.uk. We are interested in midlands related footage and may be able to make copies onto DVD for the owner depending on the quality of the original film.
