YFA Innovations

Memory Bank

Memory Bank is a new series of themed DVDs and online films designed by YFA in conjunction with health care professionals to bring past events and experiences back to life using specially selected archive footage.

In addition to the films, Memory Bank packs include photos, activity suggestions, information on Life and Times from the 1920s right up to the 1970s – a complete interactive resource for reminiscence and life story work.  Find out more


Yorkshire Calendar

Every week the Yorkshire Calendar brings you 60 seconds of archive film footage from across the region. Give your online visitors a flavour of the people, places, traditions and events that make Yorkshire so special by adding the Yorkshire Calendar to your organisation’s website: it’s easy to install, and is absolutely free! Contact us for more information.


Video Postcards

YFA is currently trialling a new innovation to launch video postcards in tourist destinations across Yorkshire. Visitors can watch and send short archive film clips via email or smartphone to be forwarded on to friends and family. A great souvenir of your visit to Yorkshire!  Find out more
