Although lockdown is easing, organisations are still having to be creative in thinking of alternatives to planned events.  Heritage Open Days are going ahead this year in virtual form and the Society is involved in Stoke-on-Trent’s offering.  Ray Johnson of Staffordshire Film Archive and Society Vice President, also chairs the local HOD group and is making a new film on Bennett’s Burslem featuring the Bursley Trail.  The video will be available on YouTube during the Festival period – 11-20 September – showing selected buildings and incorporating photos, archive film and music – with new readings of Bennett’s work linked to particular buildings.
