MACE and Stirchley Happenings
First up, we’d like to say a belated thank-you to all of you who turned up to see ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ just before Christmas. We had a great time putting it on, and with over 100 people turning up, we packed out Stirchley Community Church. We’d also like to say thanks to Gary and all of the people down at the church for making it such a welcoming and hospitable venue. There is a write-up of the day with some great pictures on MACE’s Blog here.
Speaking of MACE, before the main feature we got to see some great footage of Stirchley and the surrounding area from the archive : including news footage of suspicious goings on at Hazelwell Allotments in 1965, and the fire later that year which led to the demolition of the Church of the Ascension in Stirchley, (which has been uploaded to MACE’s website here). If you missed the films, don’t worry, we will be running it on a loop at the next Stirchley Community Market on March 1st from 4pm-7pm.
We’d also love to be able to show your videos of Stirchley and the surrounding areas at an event in the future, and with the help of MACE we can: Stirchley Happenings are acting as a collection point for your home video footage, whatever format, so that MACE can digitise film of historic or social interest for future generations. So if you have any film around and would like MACE to look at, contact Chris on 07966660771 or email@example.com, and visit our Full Circle page for more info and links to MACE’s website.
We’re totally open to comments for what feature films you’d like to see at our next screenings, which we will begin again soon. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what films/genres you’d like to see on the big screen in Stirchley.
