The Story of Scalextric Film Premiere

The Story of Scalextric Film Premiere 24 May 2017

On Saturday 13 May, The Spring was delighted to host the premiere of The Story of Scalextric film.  The film was the culmination of a project that The Spring has been working on since autumn 2016, celebrating the 60th anniversary of the creation of Scalextric in Havant. 

Working with local people and Scalextric enthusiasts, The Spring researched and collected a fantastic assortment of interesting stories which have been compiled into a documentary film and book. The documentary film features interviews with local factory workers and was filmed with the help of students from Trosnant School. 

The Story of Scalextric project was supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
