Goods shed show to high­light rail her­itage

Llanelli Star - - LETTERS -

THE Llanelli Rail­way Goods Shed Trust, in as­so­ci­a­tion with the In­de­pen­dent Film Of­fice, is of­fer­ing lo­cal peo­ple the chance to learn about the UK’s rail­way her­itage at a film screen­ing.

Bri­tain on Film: Rail­ways, a new film which charts the his­tory of the UK’s rail­ways with rare ar­chive films, will be screened in the Sel­wyn Sa­muel Cen­tre at 7pm on Thurs­day, June 6. En­try to the film screen­ing is £5, payable at the door, which in­cludes a raf­fle, and doors open at 6.30pm.

The In­de­pen­dent Cin­ema Of­fice has part­nered with the BFI to give cin­ema au­di­ences around the coun­try un­prece­dented ac­cess to the UK’s cin­e­matic rail his­tory. The fea­ture-length se­lec­tion of films with never-be­fore-seen ar­chive footage from the BFI Na­tional Ar­chive, in­cludes one of the old­est on-screen kisses and rail­way jour­neys from as long ago as 1898.

The screen­ing of the film in the Sel­wyn Sa­muel Cen­tre has been or­gan­ised by the Llanelli Rail­way Goods Shed Trust, a char­ity which is work­ing to re­store the his­toric Goods Shed site on Marsh Street and bring it back into use for the ben­e­fit of the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

For more in­for­ma­tion about the film screen­ing or Goods Shed restora­tion project, con­tact Richard Roper on 079525 64342.
