1960s Cinema-going project At University College London we have just launched a project looking at people’s memories of going to the cinema in 1960s Britain. We are interested in the ways in which people remember cinema-going, films and the decade more generally. I was wondering whether any Bedfordshire Local History Association members might be interested in contributing to this project. We have recently placed the questionnaire that forms the basis of the project on our website, http://www.ucl.ac.uk/cinemamemories. It can be accessed by clicking on the ‘Contribute your memories’ link, or it can be reached more directly by visiting http://www.ucl.ac.uk/cinemamemories/questionnaire-links/. The questionnaire can be completed online, but it can also be downloaded, printed and returned by post. We are also able to send out printed copies and freepost envelopes in which to return them. If your members would prefer this final option they can contact us in the following ways:

If you think your members might be interested in getting involved with the project, we would be very grateful if you could forward this email to them or let them know about the project in whichever way you feel is most appropriate. Please also feel free to circulate this information more widely to anyone else who you think may wish to take part.
