14 March 2019 – FILMED IN TIME – by Michael Burton

FILMED IN TIME

by

Michael Burton

Brent Scholes has been working on a large collection of 16mm colour films made
largely in the 1980’s in and around Dereham by Michael.

They show many of the people working in town, on the market, and local shops
that are now closed. Some also show farms and wildlife around the district.

The films are now digitized ready to show so that you might be able to spot a
relative or realise what has changed in the time. It makes fascinating viewing
even if you are new to the area.

The show is at;

Dereham Library

7.30pm

Thursday 14th March 2019.

If you are interested in coming can you please let the Library
know so seating can be planned ASAP.

£1.

For a Tyme Lost – event at Gressenhall Church on Saturday 10th March – 7.30pm

Bridget Yates has asked us to publicise a forthcoming event in Gressenhall Church which she thinks will be of interest to some MNFHS members.
The evening includes a talk on music in the church from the building of a West Gallery by Robert Halcott in 1635, through to the installation of an organ in 1911. During the nineteenth century there was a church band, mainly members of the extensive Tye family, and some of their instruments, which are now in Strangers’ Hall Museum, will be on display for ‘one night only’. The talk will be illustrated by The Gressenhall Singers and a band of local musicians using the early 19th century ‘Gressenhall Tune Book’. The Gressenhall Ringers will be welcoming the audience with 17th century ringing on five bells.
