3:18pm Friday 23rd August 2013 in News
IN the run up to this year’s award-winning Burnley Canal Festival, an evening of heritage films all about canals and East Lancashire will be shown at the Pendle Hippodrome.
On Wednesday, September 4, the Colne theatre will open its doors to the public for such films as “Inland Waterways” (1950) Sam Hanna’s “New Fields of Industry” (1957) and “Billy of the Barge” (1930).
Martin Cleaver, of Foulridge Canal Cruises, will compere the evening.
Emma Bartlet, Burnley canals community officer, said: “This event is a brilliant insight into our canal history and I encourage everyone to come down to the Pendle Hippodrome to watch the films.
“We’re working hard to organise the second Burnley Canal Festival and we’re confident that it will be bigger and better than last year.”
The festival will be held from September 13 to 15 and will include a wide range of attractions including a fireworks display, craft stalls, fairground rides, boat trips and live music.
Tickets for the film night will be £3 for adults. Children and senior citizens get in free.
