As part of our programme of publications our Chairman, Paul Welsh, regularly signs copies of his popular book Elstree Confidential.

We also support other authors who have written about the unique local film and TV heritage. For example, in July 2015 we organised a book signing to help launch a new book, Stars and Wars, written by Dr. Alan Tomkins. The signing was held at the Community Centre (96 Shenley Road) and was well attended. Several Stormtroopers from Star Wars were able to drop in and proved a big hit with passers-by on Shenley Road.

We would be happy to arrange similar events to support any author who we select to be an associate member of our publication programme.

    Thanks to Paul Welsh for all his endeavours. I am 80 years old and well remember all the great stars of yesteryear that he regularly writes about in the Watford Observer. I look forward to more of his deliberations in the future.
