Moving Memories: Moss Side and Hulme on Film @Central Library

In this short 30 minute film, people recall stories of living, working and growing up in the area during the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Tales of markets, cold weather and clubbing are mixed in with original BBC regional footage, to form a fascinating record.

The film was produced by Karen Gabay of the Troubadour Foundation in collaboration with the Manchester Metropolitan University’s North West Film Archive and Regional History Department. It will be introduced by Marion Hewitt of North West Film Archive and Karen Gabay.

  1. Re-run on a weekend please!

  2. What are you thinking - must show this when most people are not at work !

  3. I have asked if the event can be put on again and I'll post back here when I know for sure. You might want to email the event organiser, Libby Tempest, on and ask for a repeat showing.

  4. I don't suppose this could be posted online so that people who grew up in Moss Side but emigrated could see it too?
