Film Premier of Death in Ventnor

A feature film made around the Island by Ventnor man and Producer David George had its world premier at the Medina Theatre attended by Island personalities. Who’d a thunk it? Its about a gang of robbers. But did they stop to think about getting off the Island afterwards?. Do WightLink or Red Funnel have special rates for people in a hurry or did they find that the Ferries had stopped for bad weather, maintenance or Christmas Day. The Mystery deepens!

This film screening took place on 19th April 2009 at the Medina Theatre, Newport, Isle of Wight.

Produced and Directed by David George. Camera and Editing by David White.

Ventnor Heritage Museum

A former furniture store in Spring Hill Ventnor is the headquarters of the Ventnor Historical Society and their Heritage Museum.

Among the many exhibits are relics of WW2 and the railway age on which the holiday resort of Ventnor was founded in Victorian times. The railway has gone, but there is at least a working model of the terminus. These artefacts, together with the large archive of local material are in the care of Graham Bennet (curator) and Fay Hewitt Brown (archivist) who provides a weekly history column in the local paper.

The Museum is normally open May to October and special visits can be arranged. Contact them via their website.

Filmed and produced by Will Jackson, check out his work at Vimeo.

Graham Bennet and Fay Brown talk to about the Ventnor Heritage Museum.
