Going to the flicks…..

Although sometimes it seems difficult to believe, Tracks to the Trenches is not just about the light railways. The Living History areas and vintage vehicles are of equal importance – as we hope to be able to give the visitor an appreciation of what life was like 100 years ago.

First World War cinema - light railway in foregroundImperial Bioscope Company - travelling cinema

With thanks to the assistance of Newcastle Borough Council, we have been very fortunate to book and secure a recreation of an Edwardian travelling cinema. The Imperial Bioscope Company will present a silent move cinema, that will screen First World War newsreels featuring light railways on the Western Front. The cinema is typical of the travelling rural cinemas from the period and was a recreational facility often provided to the troops in the quieter rear areas.
