Preston And Its Guild film to premiere at the Charter Theatre (Watch the trailer here)
The North West Film Archive and the Harris Museum have collaborated produce the premiere of Preston And Its Guild, a film that looks back at the history of the Guild in the city from 1902 to the present day.
The film will be screened on Tuesday 13 March at the Charter Theatre. Tickets are £5 plus booking fee, and are available by calling the Guild Hall on 0845 344 2026, and also online.
The film takes a look at the 20th century story of Preston and its Guild celebrations, and is narrated by Roy Barraclough (Coronation Street). Preston And Its Guild traces Preston’s transformation from industrial roots to the city that it is today, using footage from both professional and amateur filmmakers.
A DVD is also scheduled to be released as part of Harris and Guild 2012 official merchandise on 14 March, and will be available to buy from the Harris Museum for £12.
