Through the Lens Film Club: Taster Sessions | 14:00 - 16:00 | Bon Marche

Join Through the Lens Film Club, a club dedicated to inspiring young filmmakers in television and film skills from acting in front of camera to directing and producing to screenwriting and editing.

Their free taster session consisting of 2 30 minute workshops will be exploring themes of 'What Stretford means to me'. Whether that's it's inspiring heritage, a strong community or our vibrant culture, get hands-on experience with professional filming equipment and enjoy life in the lime light!

For the taster session, the film camera will be set up and participants will work in pairs to film a scene in front of the camera. 

To book the free session please contact:

Development Updates:

But that's not all – our development team will also be present at the socials, eager to speak with the community. Pop over to the development corner (by the Chester Road entrance) for a chat about all the hard work going on behind the scenes to rejuvenate King Street and how we're planning to work with you, the community, to name our new town square.

Join us for a day of creativity, local artisan treats and community engagement. See you there!
