Arts FestivalArts Festival pops up in Heptonstall Museum

Sat 12 October and Sun 13 October

Come and join us on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 October and tell us what you’d like to see in your local museum. We’ve assembled some of our favourite things like the talking chair and the knitted bike but we’d love to hear from you.

Alice LongstaffThere’s also the chance to watch our short film about Alice Longstaff again which we screened at the Picture House during the Festival.

There’ll also be some photos from the wonderful Pennine Horizons Digital Archive.

The free pop up museum runs from 11pm to 4pm on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 October at Heptonstall Museum.

Blue plaqueDo you remember our blue plaque project? You can still see some of the plaques around Heptonstall and Hebden Bridge. Come and listen to the stories Ursula Holden Gill recorded in 2016 and which were inspired by the lives of those were living in the area back in 1916.

Festival chairLocal artist Lizzie Lockhart collects starburst clocks and milk bottles – she’s also fascinated by labels past and present. Come and check out her local label collection and feel free to bring some of your own!

Over the years the Arts Festival’s talking map chair has had an annually changing soundtrack: tales from Trouser Town, flood stories, voices of protest and now in partnership with artist Debbie Sharp, we have West Yorkshire Queer Stories,  the memories and experiences of LGBTIQ+ people from  across the region. Come along and have a listen.
