A Gallipoli Remembrance

Midland Film and Art members were in attendance at a remembrance service held at St Peter's Church earlier today. Rain at the beginning of the morning became a concern but fortunately the weather improved and the rain held off for the service which was a blessing in itself. The Cradley and District Ex Service Association together with the Royal British Legion Cradley organised a parade at 11am along the Avenue Of Remembrance. The churchyard has memorial inscriptions dedicated to the men who died in Gallipoli.

The parade was lead by a piper and around fifty people from the community were in attendance.

Readings from the church members were lead by Rev Katryn Leclezio and the community sang the fitting song 'Amazing Grace' which was very moving.

MFAA used grant funding by the Heritage Lottery Fund to help with video documentation, refreshments and sound services by 'Weird Systems Ltd' who provided microphones and showcased music from the era.

Overall the day was a very successful, meaningful and heartfelt occasion and for MFAA members to be a part of such an event means a great deal.

Midland Film and Art


Midland Film and Art is a membership club where people can enjoy screenings of films or view artwork and crafts that would otherwise not be shown in mainstream cinemas or exhibitions, or be available locally. These shows usually have an educational aim, introducing new audiences to different audiovisual works through screening and display, encouraging participation in arts and crafts. A common feature that may characterize a Midland Film and Art meeting is that they either begin with an introduction to the audience and/or end with the promotion of a discussion about the film/art, where assistants, organizers and sometimes the filmmakers/artists themselves, exchange their views.
