The Field Theatre Group is to celebrate film-making in Fenland by hosting a programme of local films.

The programme, supported by a grant from the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership, will showcase animations, documentaries, and shorts that relay stories from around the county.

A Field Theatre Group spokesman said: “There is something for everyone is the summer’s programme.

“We are delighted to be bringing this exciting selection of films to the public. The Fenland landscape, its people and places have inspired our film-makers and their work provides an insight into the history, culture and heritage of our unique region.”

The films are to go on view at the Welney Wetlands Centre and Babylon Gallery, Ely, from Thursday July 21 to Saturday July 30.

Entry is free, but booking is advised. For a full screening schedule or to reserve seats, email or visit search ‘Field Theatre Group’ on Facebook.
