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.

Paul You should never assume. I used to assume that I would attend all Cine events, but my wife soon put me right 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

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!
