Four films will make up a night of nostalgia being hosted by Porthleven historian and film maker Vic Strike next Wednesday (January 23).

The first, which Mr Strike has called “The Days We Like to Remember”, will feature footage of past St Peterstide celebrations with faces old and new to the port.

This will be followed by a film on Porthleven's fishermen, based around the late Bobby Laity who died two years ago.

Mr Strike has taken footage Mr Laity took at sea and pieced it together to form a film.

The third showing of the night will feature Nigel Sjoholm with his horse Rocky, who he is pictured shoeing just before Christmas.

This has led Mr Strike to give the film the title “Rocky gets new shoes for Christmas.”

The fourth and final film shows a flute choir performing, intercut with scenery from where the choir members lived, including Mullion, Kynance and Porthleven.

The film evening will take place at Porthleven Public Hall at 7pm, with doors opening at 6.30pm.

Admission is £3 per head on the door, or people can call Mr Strike in advance on 01326 562491 to reserve tickets and collect them on the door.
