Steam Trains in British film and television

A nostalgic afternoon with David Bishop.

David’s talk will feature clips of steam trains as depicted in comedy, drama and documentaries. Perhaps you will remember films such as “Brief Encounter”,  “ The Lady Vanishes” and T.V’s “Ivor The Engine”.

An afternoon for memories!

Please come along with friends or on your own and enjoy a cup of tea, a biscuit and a chat afterwards.

Why not bring a friend who might enjoy Monmouth u3a? There’s no cost for these events and no need to book.
