FREE: Memories Film Premiere & History & Heritage event


This project is supported by Film Hub North, proud to be part of the BFI Film Audience Network

Join the Chair of the Friends of the Picture House and history book co-author, Kate Higham, for her talk ‘Cinema in Hebden Bridge – A Short History’.

This will be followed by the premiere of the Memories of the Picture House film, a project of the Friends, working with Picture House audience members and former staff from across the decades, showcasing stories spanning over 50 years, and ranging from hilarious anecdotes to deeply moving recollections.

Hebden Bridge Picture House is proud to have become the UK’s first Cinema of Sanctuary, being recognised as such since August 2021, and presentation of the award to celebrate becoming a Cinema of Sanctuary will be held as part of the evening.

The event will also feature an introductory talk by Diana Monahan to the 1924 Hebden Bridge Band Carnival film and a second chance to see the film, with new score by Ben Burrows, performed by the Treske Ensemble, which premiered at the Picture House on 11th September, Heritage Open Day.

This event is free. Please let us know if you decide not to come so we can re-offer your ticket as places are limited.
