Haymaking on Exmoor, apple picking in South Somerset and Minehead in all its pre war pomp. These are just some of the films local television programme maker, David Parker, has collected and used in films about the history of Somerset. In the first half of this illustrated talk David will bring old Somerset back to life with some of these glorious films.

In the second half he will focus on some of the programmes he has made about our area, including a fascinating story about cigarette cards and Somerton, and the crafts and traditions of the Somerset Levels’. 

David’s illustrated talk is sponsored by the Community Rail Partnership.

Coffee, tea & biscuits will be available for purchase in the interval.
