Movie day in memory of popular Stan

Have your say

TICKETS are still available for a movie day celebrating a history of Barnsley which will be held in memory of a well-known photographer.

Stan Bulmer senior, who was involved in the initial stages of the project, died March this year aged 78.

He worked for many years on local newspapers and was described as one of South Yorkshire’s best loved and respected former news and wedding photographers.

The Barnsley in Film event will be hosted by the Friends of Barnsley Archives and Local Studies at the Parkway Cinema on Eldon Street from 10am on Monday, July 11.

The two-hour show is a taster of the extensive footage donated to the Experience Barnsley Museum Archives project.

Also showing will be the mining film Black Diamonds, along with other titles spanning a century of change.

Tickets cost £2 and are available from the Archives department on the top floor of the Central Library, Shambles Street.

All proceeds go to the Friends of Barnsley, a voluntary group that promotes an awareness of local historical research material available in the Archives and Local Studies department of Barnsley Council, based in the Central Library.
