Christpher Richardson-Brand Collection
Christopher is recording our British heritage, before too much of it disappears forever due to external influences. He has produced DVD’s about many of the major events which took place in Morecambe.
In 2014 he produced, “2014 An Eventful Year for Morecambe”and “Hidden Lancaster”, a behind the scenes look at this historic city. He has also staged several sell out public shows telling of the beauty and heritage of the area, as well as producing international videos.
From 2003 he moved back to Lancashire and produced a whole series of award winning videos about the area.
Also, he shadowed the Queen’s Guide to the Kent Sands (Morecambe Bay) for the whole of 2013 and a two hour DVD called “The Legendary Cedric Robinson MBE” has been released to coincide with a Gala Tribute which Christpher organized in his honour to celebrate his fifty years of being the guide, his 80th birthday and his fifty third wedding anniversary in October 2013.
2020 saw the completion of “DISCOVERING WYREDEAN” about the beautiful WYRE VALLEY AND THE FOREST OF DEAN. Sadly, because of coronavirus, he had still not been able to launch by 2021. See also www.heritagevideoproductions.co.uk for more of his recent films .
