Elstree Screen Heritage
We undertake a variety of activities locally and nationally.
We regularly create displays on the growth of the film and television industry in Elstree and Borehamwood, covering key events in the history of the film and television studios as well as current productions.
Our most recent event was the Centenary Exhibition which attracted over 1,700 visitors over the three months it ran at the Community Museum at 96 Shenley Road.
Collection and Archives
We have a growing collection on local film and TV, including photographs, oral interviews, objects and documents.
Almost all of the material in the collection has been donated or loaned by local residents. We guarantee that any photos you lend us will be scanned and returned within 3 working days. Should you wish to donate material we will store it safely and it will be available to you for viewing upon request.
We have the support of the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television and the Museum of London. If you wish we can put you in touch with their experts.
We can organise a visit to your group, with formal presentations on various aspects of the local film and television heritage. Students and teachers can arrange access to our growing archive to support their project work.
As we are a voluntary community group, our services to schools are free
