Hi all,
Does anybody know the date of the Farnworth film convention 2019? - and also possibly the correct contact who we can book a stall with. We seemed to have misplaced the leaflet that we were given at Blackpool.

Best Regards,
Pete

I have to agree with you Dom. What's wrong with posting the full details, instead of secret pm's? It's an event that all of us would wish to be reminded of I'm sure.

Paul
You should never assume. I used to assume that I would attend all Cine events, but my wife soon put me right [Cool]
Thanks for the info on Farnworth though. Stupidly I thought it was in the South!
(Confusing it with Farnborough I suppose) I must work on my geography [Eek!]

Well done Douglas.

Farnworth Film Fun Day is a small but very friendly event which has been held near Bolton UK for many years formerly by EFS a long established cine business which closed when Denis Parkinson passed. His son Nigel has kept it going and doing a great job as well.

If anyone arrives early looking for breakfast you will find cafes outside the church front which is handy.

You will find a bus service that stops near the Church also train stations.

Bus out of Manchester is the X39 takes about an hour.

Train out of Manchester Victoria takes about 16 minutes but be aware many trains are being cancelled at weekends.

Trains from Manchester Piccadilly to Farnworth take around 30 minutes when running.

Come along if you can and enjoy a great event,hot food made by the ladies of the Church and also the legendary auction.
Truly a fun day!

It's easy to confuse the name Farnworth with Farnham, a town 35 miles south-west of London in Surrey.

I still haven't had any response back from Nigel in purchasing a stall for the day and I'm now getting a little worried!!

The first email address that I was given bounced back and I haven't had any response back from the second one that I found on the internet.

I didn't really want to phone him directly, does anybody have a second email address - Or could Nigel actually be reading this thread, perhaps?

Best Regards,
Pete

Always been a very friendly gathering and you tend to see many old faces that are not agile enough to travel very far but still enjoying the hobby. Its nice to see everyone again and catch up.

A handsome cine enthusiast
