Recorded over the past year, this moving and uplifting film – the title is taken from a saying on a Roman coin the Burgh Castle Almanac (BCA) group found at the Fort – illustrates the kind of activities the BCA have been involved in, with members also explaining how the group has benefited them. The film is directed by Lowestoft-based photographer and filmmaker Julian Claxton, together with members of the group.
It’s hoped that other parts of the country will take up the BCA model, and the film is seen as a major contributing factor towards achieving that aim.
The film can be viewed on YouTube: please note this link with take you to an external website: ‘The Return of Happy Times’
