THE Ponteland Railway and Archive film show in July follows on from the Royalty and Railways theme in May.

The Colonial Film Unit goes through how to catch a bus, architects discuss the Festival of Britain and those watching will head down the tube and ride the trams.

As the Olympics opening ceremiony in East London draws closer, the 150th anniversary of the Great Eastern Railway Company, based in Stratford, will be celebrated.

The footage will be shown on Saturday, at 3pm and 7.30pm, in St Mary’s Church Hall, Thornhill Road.

Admission is free and refreshments are available in the intervals.
