Back in November and February we reported about a film to be created detailing the story of the Preston Pals.


Arts group Rowbot Street received £48,200 from the Heritage Lottery Fund helping them to tell the story of the Pals Battalions through a project called Pals For Life.

Dan Rowbottom, project co-ordinator said: “We are thrilled to have received the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund and we are excited that communities will get this unique opportunity to explore the story of the Pals.”

The Preston Adult Research Group is holding sessions at the Harris Museum Preston in the rotunda cafe open to anyone interested in becoming a volunteer for the Pals for Life project.

As a volunteer you will be able to research the story of the Preston Pals, visit local museums and take part in creating a film based on their story. The finished film will be screened at the IWMN in October 2014 with additional screenings across the North West.

The sessions are a chance to learn more about the project and find out what you can expect as part of it. Places are limited so please book early.

The next session will be on 19th March then 2nd April and finally 23rd April. All times are 10.30am to12pm.

Please email or call 01706 211 678 to book your place.

Rowbot Street is an organisation working with young people and the wider community on media and art based projects.
