MediaActive Presents… Adventures with Archives

An array of short films, using archive film unearthed from British and International film archives, provides a fascinating window into times past.

Since Spring 2020, the Adventures with Archives programme has been working alongside archivists, curators, musicians, screenwriters, poets, and filmmakers. The latter have collaborated with young and older people from across Shropshire, who have been involved in researching, selecting, and repurposing archive footage for contemporary audiences, by creating new soundtracks, new narratives, and new experiences.

With the support of the BFI, Film Hub Midlands, Shropshire Council, Flicks in the Sticks and, during the UK Lockdowns, Arts Council England and Arts Connect , MediaActive Projects are delighted to showcase some of the work made during the second and third seasons of their Adventures with Archives project.  


Exhibitions are currently open Monday to Saturday 6.30pm-8pm, and selected afternoons when Theatre Severn is open for public events only. Please check opening times before your visit.

Exhibitions are regularly extended to the Chapel Bar, located on Stalls level.
