In October 1810, the foundation stone of the Jubilee Tower situated on the summit of Moel Famau was laid by Lord Kenyon as 5000 people processed to the top of Moel Famau, to watch as the ceremony was enacted on behalf of the Prince of Wales. The "Jubilee Tower 200" event depicted in this series of films was a community-driven celebration of an iconic landmark which is visited and enjoyed by over 200,000 people every year.
On Sunday 24th October 2010, thousands of people, young & old took to North Wales's favourite beauty spot just to be part of a modern-day procession to the Jubilee Tower.
The day was documented for posterity by many of the camera-toting participants in the organised summit procession. This video is the first part of a volunteer-lead work that hopes to capture the essence of the day for the enjoyment of future generations. Ultimately, the film and sound recordings will be deposited with the Wales National Film & Sound Archives, Aberystwyth. Look out for later episodes which will include interviews with members of the public and several prominent community leaders -all of whom shared an invigorating walk in glorious sunshine.
The film-makers -all in their late retirement years- would be interested in incorporating any extra "footage" of the late-night lantern descent and the closing fabulous firework display. If you have anything you would like to be considered for this historic archive, please email the producer at firstname.lastname@example.org
