Seaford 150: A great success!

Welcome to the weekend, Filmspotters. We are looking forward to our inaugural screening in support of the Deaf Diaspora tomorrow, details about the screening follow towards the end of this blog post.

Thank you to all of you who came out to enjoy the celebrations of 150 years of the Seaford to Brighton branch line. We were in Bishopstone station, working with the Seaford Community Cinema to show a selection of films made by pupils from the Harbour Primary School, Newhaven, along with some archive films of local, national and international significance, all based on the theme of the railway. We were kept busy with a range of visitors, of all ages, who all found something of interest in the film reel.

The station itself is a real architectural gem - and it was great to see so many people enjoying this fascinating building.

Our thanks and congratulations to the Sussex Community Rail Partnership who worked so hard and made the day a great success. Also, we would like to thank our new friends at Seaford Community Cinema. It was great to work with them, and we can’t wait to go to some of their screenings next season!
