Registered Charity No. 298527



Would all our supporters please note that in view of the current Covid 19 situation and Government Regulations we are unable to provide our normal programme of shows. At present it remains unclear when Wellingborough Museum will reopenfor Members nights or shows for the public.

We normally start our programme in the Autumn to take advantage of the dark evenings, however a lack of availability of the Dulley room at the Museum for evening presentations and the possibility of a further Covid lock down has meant that we will not be offering shows there until at least early 2022. In the meantime please feel free to use our Contact Page for enquiries and to make future show or lecture bookings.

We look forward to seeing our supporters when we are all free to meet safely.


There's a new way to support The Northamptonshire Film Archive Trust at no cost to yourself.  

We have registered the trust on the Amazon Smile website which will donate a percentage of the value on every eligible order. Should you wish to do so please search for ‘Northamptonshire Film’ on the Amazon Smile website and our name, The Northamptonshire Film Archive Trust, will be displayed. The regular donation to us is 0.5% and, though that may not sound much, every little helps and can soon build up. 

If you are thinking of making an online purchase and would like to support us you can do so by shopping through: smile.amazon.co.uk 

Thank you


The Northamptonshire Film Archive Trust is a registered charity run entirely by volunteers dedicated to the preservation of cine film and equipment. We are formal members of the Northamptonshire Heritage Forum.

The Trust has more than 4,000 reels of film in its collection both professional and amateur and of all gauges. It has a particular interest in the collection of film depicting events in Northamptonshire and the surrounding counties and is frequently called upon by television companies seeking specific footage for inclusion in documentaries or news reports.

Like books in a library that need to be read, the Trust believes film is meant to be seen. As a self-funded charity organisation and, as a means of financial support, holds frequent film presentations at its current home — The Wellingborough Museum — in addition to appearances at steam rallies and other events.

Anyone with an interest in cine film is very welcome to attend the monthly meetings when, after a brief report on recent activities, refreshments are served and a selection of films from the collection are screened.

We are pleased to accept the donation of unwanted film to our archive and can provide a conversion service to preserve film on DVD or other digital media. Find more information here.
