Narrated by John Hurt, THE FINAL REEL is a feature length documentary which tells the fascinating story of how cinemas and cinema-going have developed and flourished over the years – even in some of the most rural parts of England. The film features a mix of actuality, interviews and archive material, and offers an entertaining overview of the history of cinema-going in Norfolk, and a snapshot of cinema-going in England today.

Our short ALL THE FUN OF THE FAIR was made by young school students about the history of the Mart, King’s Lynn’s 800 year old market and funfair. The film is running while the Mart is on at Stories of Lynn, the museum at King’s Lynn Town Hall. In just a few minutes, these talented young film makers trace the Mart from its origins to the present day.
Last Saturday (18th June) was our wedding day. Someone let one of our dogs out of our bungalow in Little Snoring, and he was picked up by a wonderful lady who was from Walsingham. You can imagine the panic we got in, an hour and a half before we get married, and our beloved dog is missing. They put him in their car, and bought him home to us. I never had the chance to thank them personally, and am hoping that this message might give me that opportunity – they saved our dog from being hit by a car, and saved our wedding day…… we shall be for ever grateful to them.
