Darwen Days presents Real To Reel!

The first collaboration of it's kind, consisting of 60 minutes of donated home videos and cine film footage from 1921 to 2012.

You can see the devastation of Carr Road after the floods in 1964, the unveiling of the Angel war memorial in Bold Venture Park, how marvellous Darwen Gala was in the 1960s, the lycra and leotards donned by Darreners at the Leisure Centre in the 1980s, plus lots more!

Whether you're a local Darrener or living across the world and missing the town, this DVD brings nostalgia and memories for Darreners everywhere, whatever their age.

The Launch of our News Blog

After the wettest Darwen Gala for many years, the Darwen Days team packed up their stall and went home to dry their feet by the fire. If you were one of the many that came to us at our stall, thank you so much for your support! We all really appreciate it.

We're always looking for ways to make Darwen Days bigger, better and more accessible for everyone and have now launched a news blog which you'll find on the menu at the top of the page. The news blog is the place to find out where we'll be next- from exhibitions and events to meetings and galas- and also what features we have planned for the Darwen Days community in the near future.

Unlike the Facebook Page, you can comment on the blog posts without a Facebook account, which we know will come as a nice surprise for those of you who don't want to sign up to t'whole social media malarkey. 

There'll be changes afoot too over the next few weeks as we will be building on extra parts to our website so that the younger generations of Darreners have an excellent study resource to learn all about our much loved town.
