Goods shed show to highlight rail heritage
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.
