Film & Sound

As well as events and exhibitions, our community projects often result in film and audio recordings.  This is an inclusive and creative way for our communities to tell their stories and document important tales that are accessible to us all. 

We hope you’re inspired by the sights and sounds of the brilliant people of Gloucester…
