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 reopen, consequently we do not know when we will be able to have rescheduled Members nights or shows for the public.

When we are given notice of access to the Museum again we will update our Programme Page on this site to indicate any revised arrangements.

In the meantime please feel free to use our Contact Page for enquiries and to make future show or lecture bookings.

Latest News. The Team are still busy with the film database development and the cataloguing of our Archive. A major issue in 2020 was the flooding of the Museum cellar due to unexpected heavy rainfall; regrettably we lost a small amount of our holdings and  a considerable amount of effort has been required to ensure that all our material is now in a good state and protected from further damage. The enforced break in our normal programme has also been an opportunity to devote time to consider strategies for the future of the Archive. We look forward to seeing our supporters when we are all free to meet safely. 

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 3,000 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.
