- Tuesday 28th June, 8pm: 1970 -1980 – 1991
- Wednesday 29th June, 8pm: 1986 – 1996– 2013
The Welwyn Film Record Society welcomes new members.
The Welwyn Film Record Society is in its 48th year. The society has completed a film each year without a break from 1968 to 2009. Our digital archive now provides a more than 40 year record of Welwyn’s people, places and events. Featured items include the coming of the A1M motorway, the discovery of the Roman Bathouse, housing development at Danesbury and the effects of decimalisation and the three day week on the village. Audiences are amused when the voice over tells of houses in Welwyn costing up to £9000 and that petrol may soon cost over £1 a gallon. In short, the films are a
fascinating social and environmental record of Welwyn and the surrounding area.
