We are a local collective focusing on the power of human stories - whether these be read, spoken or sung. Words and stories are good for you and fun! To prove it, we are involved in a number of different projects in East Lancashire.
Firstly we are leading a new choir in Colne. Called The Curious Choir in Colne, it is held on Monday evenings at Colne Library, Market Street, Colne, BB8 0AP. Are you curious to know what your voice sounds like after all these years? Have you been inspired by Gareth Malone to come together with others to sing? Do you like the idea of sharing through song? There will be auditions and no necessity to read music – as we will be learning “by ear”. If you are interested please contact us or use the facebook page in the link above.
The second is called Stories of Sandygate: Memories and stories connected to Sandygate, which is in the heart of the Weavers’ Triangle in Burnley, all written by local people and local writers. A booklet has now been produced and can be collected from The Weavers Triangle Visitors Centre. Some of the stories are also available to read here or to listen to as you walk through the Weavers’ Triangle – just download them via this app!
Finally we are working jointly with The Secret Singers on “Getting Together” – a singing group for people with dementia and their carers. This is in conjunction with Crossroads Care and takes place weekly in Burnley. The sessions are held on Mondays at Rosegrove Community WMC between 1.30pm and 3.30 p.m. Please contact us if you would like more information.
