• They sang and danced all night

    On 8th May 2020, we celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day: Victory in Europe. To mark the occasion, we've put together a short compilation of footage filmed across the Yorkshire and North East regions during those celebratory days in 1945.

  • Carr Infant School 2016 - 2017

    The Easter eggs have been eaten, the blossom is blooming, and under normal circumstances it would have been back to school for children across the UK; however, the effects of COVID-19 are writing a new chapter in our history. As parents start to plan their next homeschooling lesson and teachers get to grips with ‘virtual teaching’, we thought it was a good time to look behind the scenes of a much-loved York school.

  • Alnwick & Northumberland On Film

    On Sunday 5th January we were delighted to be part of the Alnwick Playhouse grand reopening weekend, presenting our show of ALNWICK & NORTHUMBERLAND ON FILM to a sold out crowd!  As we expected, the venue is beautiful, and it was brilliant to see the newly-opened building so busy!

    At the event we presented a programme of films dating back to the 1920s, and the audience watched Northumberland residents at work and play over the last 100 years.
