A SILVER Jubilee parade in Crowle and the touring West Indies playing at New Road in the 1950s will feature in a special screening of footage from Worcestershire's archives.
Worcestershire on Film includes footage from the vaults of Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service and the Media Archive for Central England.
It's taking place at the Swan Theatre on Bank Holiday Monday (June 4) at 7.30pm and follows the huge success of last year's event.
This year's screening will coincide with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Celebrations and will feature a special additional clip of home cine from 1977's Silver Jubilee parade in Crowle.
There will also be footage of the flooding at Kidderminster and colour film of cricket at Worcestershire's New Road ground, which includes a visit by the touring West Indies side of May 1957.
Other highlights include a busy day at the Three Counties Show of 1955 and transport material including local canals and the building of a bypass at Ombersley.
Paul Hudson, Learning and Outreach Manager, said, "It will be another great evening viewing bygone eras. Many times people recognise friends or relatives and there's always a buzz as people reminisce."
Tickets are £6 and can be booked from Worcester Live box office 01905 611427.
