Video: 1967 opening of Nelson’s Arndale Centre

Have your say

Back in the 1960s, film-makers were on hand to capture the opening of Nelson’s big new shopping centre.

Now, years later, Pendle Movie Makers are compiling film footage of the event and are asking people involved in the launch for their comments to air over the clips.
