I’ve just noticed via Facebook that there’s a showing of a unique Burntwood Wakes archive film at St. Anne’s Church, Chasetown this afternoon (Saturday, 25th July 2015); showings start every 20 minutes from 1pm until 4pm – it’s free.
I know little about this, but it looks like a cracker – get up there if you can!
St. Anne’s in Church Street, Chasetown was, of course, the first church in the UK lit by electric light, and its history is very closely intertwined with the mining industry in the area. It’s well worth a visit for that alone, so do pop along!
The Burntwood Wakes Archive Film Project posted the following on Facebook:
First ever film showing Today! Come to St. Anne’s, Chasetown. 1.00 today. Film being shown every 30 minutes until 4.00. FREE ENTRY. All Burntwood’s Wakes Memories over 150 years. Where it all began !
