We believe it is very important to make the archive available to as many people as possible and the Cumbria Film Archive regularly has shows and presentations in different parts of the county. We are also available for groups to book us for an evening or afternoon film event. Each show is different and the films chosen will generally be most relevant to whichever part of the county we are visiting.



If you would like to see one of our popular presentation events where you can enjoy many rare archive films from different parts of Cumbria then we have three dates for your diary. We will be at Higham Hall, near Cockermouth on Sunday, 7th November 2021. Planning well ahead we are also scheduled for two more shows in 2022 at Higham Hall. They are on Sunday, 8th May 2022 and Sunday, 20th November 2022. Each event is two and a half hours duration. They promise an afternoon of entertainment and nostalgia. You need to contact Higham Hall directly on 01768 776276. The shows start at 2pm and there are refreshments provided. Tickets are £15 each or two tickets for £25. Tea and cake is also included in the price.

Obviously we had to postpone our presentation events in 2020 because of Covid 19 but we hope to hold many more shows throughout the county in 2021 … of course this will depend on the medical situation at the time. Our shows are very popular and we try to host them in as many places as possible. If you are the organiser of a group then you can contact us on the message bar below.
If you would like to hold an event please feel free to get in touch below and share an evening of nostalgia with us.
