It will include excerpts from films including The Brook (1950), made by Brook Motors of Huddersfield, which tells the story of a Yorkshire river and the industries along its banks as the river flows from its source to the sea. The film includes a closer look at Brook Motors as well as Bamforths postcard manufacturers and David Brown tractors.

Sections of the 1972 film Home James will also be shown, following James Mason as he returns to his childhood home of Huddersfield, explaining why the town holds such a special place in his heart.

Familiar locations and buildings, such as the Victorian market hall, will also be featured in an amazing mix of archive footage showing the people, places, major events, and everyday life over the past 100 years.

The footage will be specially curated and presented by Steve Morley, of the Yorkshire Film Archive, who will take the audience on a journey through Huddersfield’s rich history as seen through the lenses of both amateur and professional filmmakers.

Yorkshire Film Archive is a registered charity with a remit to find, preserve and provide public access to the moving image, ranging from films made by the early film pioneers of the late 1890s, to recent footage of changing landscapes and life.
