Geoffrey Malins’ 1916 Film The Battle of the Somme

This proved a very popular February attraction with the Old Mill at virtually  full capacity. It was also good to see a cross section of all ages and genders.

Jeremy Paxman had given us the perfect plug by including something of the film in his Britain’s Great War series broadcast on BBC1 earlier in the week.

There was also a very varied and interesting response from the audience lasting over an hour when we moved to the discussion part of the evening.
