Last weekend, Saturday 17th December from 4pm, the Stirchley Happenings Full Circle Group held their annual Christmas film screening at the Stirchley Community Church and all were invited!
As a pre-feature film short to raise awareness of their involvement in the MACE Full Circle Project, the group showed a 15 minute archive film compilation of Christmas in Birmingham…
Then they showed their main film – Miracle on 34th Street, the 1947 version.
It was magical! Christmas at its best!
I wanted to shout
“I believe! I believe!”
As the last scenes were played and the credits rolled, audience members, old and young, hearts were filled with festive joy!
