Stepping through time ….

 Would you like to get involved in the 2016 Hebden Bridge Arts Festival?

The theme of the Arts Festival is Trouser Town.

Marguerite Eccles is facilitating a multi-media community day, with displays, memorabilia, information, performances, music, storytelling, film and photographs on 29 June 2016.

It will be called Stepping Through Time

She is particularly interested in the history of the mills and sewing shops in the region, and the people who worked in this industry.

She is also looking at the social scene of the 40s, 50s and 60s and is hoping to collect stories and memorabilia of dance hall days and courting.

If you would like to get involved by telling your story, creating or making something for a display, loaning some memorabilia – or in any other way – contact Marguerite on 07745 790490.

If you run or attend an activity group and would like your group to be involved please get in touch with Marguerite to talk about how your group would like to participate – you could put on your own dance performance, display work that you have been making, share memories through story-telling, show photographs from the time etc…

It should be a fantastic event and we’d love community groups to feature on the day!
