Welcome to Renown Films

Welcome to the March / April 2017 Renown Film Club Newsletter!

Dear Club Members,

Hoping you are all well.

Thank you to all of you who came forward willing to share your memories for our Talkies strand coming up on Talking Pictures TV. We will let you all know when the interviews will be filmed and screened.

This month we are looking for 16mm nostalgic footage for our Glimpses strand. If you have historic locations and remarkable events on film from the 30s, 40s, 50s or 60s and would be happy to share with us please get in touch.

In other news, readers of The Sun may be pleased to know that our TV listings will be carried in there from Saturday 11th March. Let’s hope more magazines and papers follow soon. We’ve got some exclusive club specials you can’t afford to miss out on this month, along with our first jigsaw and an audio CD. We also have an intriguing book by John Hannam. John has interviewed over 4,000 people during his career as a showbiz journalist. More details on reverse

We also have a BRAND NEW catalogue, packed full of new club specials and classic film offers, as well as new sections on CD audiobooks and exclusive merchandise. If you would like one, then just remember to tick the box on the form when you send in your order – or ask if you are phoning.

We will be at Westminster Film Fair, Central Hall, Storey’s Gate, SW1H 9NH on Saturday 25th March 2017 from 10am - 5pm. This event will have many guests from the worlds of Doctor Who and Star Wars among other cult and classic films and television series. Remember to bring this newsletter with you for £1 off the entrance fee as a Renown Club Member! Nearest tube stations are St James’s Park or Westminster. If you are in the area do come and say hello and pick up a show bargain or two.

Next month’s newsletter will be a little later than normal and will be posted after Easter. Until then, stay tuned!

Many thanks for your support.

Best Wishes,

Noel, Sarah and Neill
