Sporting Lives & Landscapes

Directed by Various

Looking back at the times when English sport was fuelled by a half-time cup of tea and a fag rather than multi-million shirt sponsorships, this unique evening offers the chance to see four North West-produced short documentaries, covering 1940s-1970s. Catch a rare glimpse of Belle Vue and Lancashire League cricket in the 40s; behind-the-scenes at Salford Rugby League Club (1969); and Burnley v. Man U (1970).Presented by Simon Inglis, author of a new English Heritage book Played in Manchester. Simon will be signing copies of the book after the screening.In association with the North West Film Archive at Manchester Metropolitan University, English Heritage, and £3.50
