66th BFCC - 29th April 2023

The new venue is to be the Chorleywood War Memorial Hall which is both on the Western edge of London and within the London Underground network but outside of the Congestion Tax zone which means it is as accessible as it can possibly be for an event to be held in the London area. There is a large car park at the hall (directly opposite) which is free. The address of the new venue is Common Road, Chorleywood, Herts, WD3 5LN.

As more news becomes known we will post it here but at the time of writing this the hope is that Keith Wilton will be back to full health and there as the master of ceremonies as usual. Also, the intention is that the 24 feet wide CinemaScope screen will be in use but the hall does have a drop down screen that is approximately 17 feet wide if we do have a problem. We expect to be showing Super 8 and 35mm as well as hopefully 4K video projection. A good supply of dealers is planned including Phil and Denise Sheard from Classic Home Cinema all the way from Cleethorpes.

Admission will be £5 and a large dealer table will be £25. Please email me via john.clancy@bfcc.biz is you are interested in having a table as we would like to fill both of the available side rooms with films, videos and memorabilia for sale.

More news will be uploaded as it comes in.
