Short Films Premiere


2pm Thursday 19th June – Phoenix Centre, Dunford Road, Holmfirth

A series of short films, made by members of Holme Valley Sharing Memories Group, will put the spotlight on the lives of the older generation in Holmfirth.

The films will be premiered on Thursday 19th June at 2pm at the Phoenix Centre in Holmfirth as part of this year’s Holmfirth Arts Festival (7-27 June).

Members of the group, who are all in their 70s, 80s and 90s, have been working with artists Jenny Ellis, Jan Benham and Jon Robson to capture personal memories of the past 80 years. The films reveal fascinating stories, including an overland expedition to India by motorbike in the early sixties and how lives were changed after the second World War.
