Design Nation at Craft Festival

Craft Cinema in association with Find a Maker

Meet Audrey, the Vintage Mobile Cinema
We’re so happy that once again this year at Craft Festival you’ll be able to visit our very special Craft Cinema. And Audrey has the most incredible history & story.
Audrey is the only survivor of seven vehicles that were custom built for the Ministry of Technology in the 60's.
Tony Benn, the Minister of Technology at the time, commissioned the busses and they travelled the country visiting factories showing short films about the new & upcoming technologies for British businesses to use
This incredible piece of cinematic and transport history will be home to our Craft Cinema in Bovey this June & each day there’ll be a full programme of short films about contemporary makers together with historical news clips from Pathé News
Will you be stepping inside Audrey to experience our special Craft Cinema?
