On Monday 3rd December the Preston Historical Society meeting which is held at the Central Methodist Church, Lune Street, Preston, will feature Emma Heslewood, Keeper of History at the Harris Museum in Preston, giving her first public lecture on Will Onda.
After over 4 years of digging in archives and reading old newspapers with the help of Peter Vickers Emma will give a short but hopefully fascinating insight into an early pioneer in the cinema and film industry from Onda’s time as an acrobat to his development as a ‘recorder of our modern age’ and film distributor.


More details of Emma’s work can be found on Emma Heslewood’s Blog
