In-Situ and Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership present…
A Gathering: Pendle Hill in Brierfield
Saturday 25th May, 12 – 3PM
FREE ENTRY. All Welcome.
Open day at The Garage for showcasing the past year of work on the Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership.
The highlight of the day will be the unveiling of the Pendle Mobile Hut, which will tour Pendle over the next 4 years. The hut has been designed and built by architect Nick Wood whose work was previously featured in Channel 4’s Cabins in the Wild.
Andy Abbott at In-Situ said: “We are excited to be launching the mobile hut at A Gathering. Its been a real pleasure to see Nick’s process and the way the design takes inspiration from Pendle’s physical and social landscaoe. You will be seeing the hut pop up in locations around Pendle over the coming years – keep an eye out!”
The day will also see the return of Five Verses on Six Sacks of Earth – the mobile micro opera created by artists Nastassja Simensky and Rebecca Lee in response to the archeological dig at Malkin Tower Farm in June 2018. The event will include the premier of a short film about the project and a live performance of one of the songs from the opera.
Come to find out about the many projects underway that make up the Heritage Lottery funded Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership scheme, including
peat restoration, building of paths and a shelter, projects with children and isolated adults, art commissions, historical research into Radical people from Pendle’s past, archaeology and training in traditional skills. There will be Talkaoke – a live talk show about Pendle Hill, and the Pendle Pie and Peat Pud food tasting and judging!
