Archive Film of Tonbridge 

Group: Archive Film of Tonbridge (previously Memories of Tonbridge on Film)

Meets: Third Wednesday of each month at 2pm

Venue: Locally


A new season of films of Tonbridge, for the winter months, starting in October and going on until May next year.

The new group – Archive Films of Tonbridge will meet each month in Tonbridge with a selection of films of local interest from the Tonbridge Film Makers archive of more than 500 films. The majority of films are made in and around the Tonbridge area. Many are short films others, including shows and events are full length.

Last year at u3a group - Memories of Tonbridge on Film we viewed a number of films but we still have lots available to view including activities in the Town, on the Castle Lawn, the River etc. Plus looking back at various celebration and events held in the town, such as the Arts Festivals of 2010 and 2012, the return of Kelly Holmes with Olympic medals, commemorations of 100 years after the end of World War 1 etc. the list goes on.

Members of the new group may like to bring their own experiences for discussion at the meetings whether they had participated and even may be included in the films or their family and friends. Maybe having just attended an event with fond memories.

We meet in the afternoon on the third Wednesday each month in Tonbridge. Members of the Memories of Tonbridge Group and new members all are welcome.

The earlier group Memories of Tonbridge on Film will now be incorporated into the new group Archive Films of Tonbridge which aims to make available the viewing of the many films about the local area.
