Ashford Jubilee 2022: a thank you to the Queen on film

Time to celebrate with the Queen! Really delighted to announce a new project that’s going to be happening in super-quick time. Ashford Jubilee 2022: a thank you to the Queen on film! 

Funder Films CIC will be commissioning eight young film-makers to help with this project over the next month, asking them to document some of the celebrations that are happening in June both in Ashford town centre and the surrounding villages. Not just the celebrations but also preparations for the celebrations. 

The project is funded by the Arts Council Let’s Create Jubilee fund. For more details please see the press release. Please also see the press release if you’re a young film-maker (or even not so young) and would be keen to take part.

Ashford’s Hidden Treasures – 23

The railway has played a great role in Ashford’s development – not just in the 19th-century but also more recently with the arrival (and departure) of Eurostar. Let’s hope that more intercontinental high speed trains will be stopping at Ashford in the near future – and their models can be added to the new model railway centre in Bethersden.
