Harrow Film Makers Spring Film Show (feat. Pinner Chalk Mines)

Harrow Film Makers are hosting their spring film show at Pinner Village Hall on 27th April. There are lots of films to see, of local, and wider interest.

The new Heath Robinson Museum is a star of the show, with film of the opening ceremony, the Secret Art Sale, and the visit of St Martins’ Central MA students, who visited the museum to try out their own unique Robinsonesque contraption.

There is a film about the work and influences of sculptor Naomi Blake, as well as a travelogue and comedy shorts and a film about Harrow’s float in the London New Year’s Day parade.

Sure to generate local interest in Pinner is a film made by the society in 1991/2, taken in the chalk mines in Pinner. The film shows the layers of flint and chalk in the mines, how the chalk was extracted, and the layer of puddingstone supporting the ground above.

The film is presented by Ken Kirkman, the local expert and author on the chalk mines, and in view of the closure of Pinner Wood School after the discovery of previously unknown mining, local residents may want to view the film to discover what may lie beneath their feet.

Doors open at 7.30 for 8pm start and tickets are £6 on the door, including interval refreshments.

When: Thursday 27th April 2017. from 8.00pm

Where: Pinner Village Hall
