Heritage Quay  

Following their extremely successful autumn/winter programme, the team at Heritage Quay have just announced details of their free events, workshops and activities taking place from April to August this year.

Some additional slots will be available on the day on a first-come, first-served basis.

For rugby league fans, there will be many opportunities to soak up the rich heritage of the game with legends in conversation next month followed by a celebration of the amazing 1946 touring side and a scientific investigation into what makes a rugby player in July.

For Record Store Day  people are invited to cut a record in a unique event inspired by the thousands of vinyl records held in the archive. And don’t forget the Listening Room, Heritage Quay’s unique monthly dose of renaissance and contemporary classical music mixed with dance bands and a hint of jazz.

If using your hands is more appealing, then why not book on Music in Motion, a two-part animation workshop inspired by classical music works at Heritage Quay?

Heritage Quay isn’t neglecting local history either. Whether it’s the history of the University, Colne Valley Labour Party or the brave conscientious objectors of 1917 there is something for everyone.

With the summer holidays fast approaching, there’s lots to do at Heritage Quay for younger visitors. Budding teenage conductors can receive expert tuition from some of the most talented young conductors in the country in July and sports-mad families (or those who love making things) should enjoy Family Fun Fridays in July, August and September. Those who love engineering instead can try their hands at experiments and games for Under Pressure in August.

A print version of the programme will be hitting the streets later this month so act now to book tickets and not miss out!
