Pensioner Mary Harris’s find of a 90-year-old film showing the Herne Bay festival has aroused a lot of interest, and now bosses at the Little Theatre in Bullers Avenue are planning to show the clip, which vividly brings back to life the town as it was in 1922.
Historian and curator of the Herne Bay Historical Records Society Mike Bundock will be giving a talk before the screening. He said:
“I’m planning to give a talk about the town from 1899 – when the third pier was built — to the early 1920 and finish with the film, which I have yet to see and am eagerly awaiting a look at.”
Mike Bundock’s talk is titled Herne Bay – The Edwardian Era To The 1920s and will take place at the Herne Bay Little Theatre, Bullers Avenue, Herne Bay, on Saturday, March 3, at 7.30pm.
Admission for the event is £3 and booking is recommended via the box office on 01227 366004.
