Heritage Celebrations

We are delighted to be able to invite you to the launch of our Heritage Celebrations in Folktown, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, 15th Oct 2015, 11:30am.

Our first events are a number of free workshops and demonstrations for all ages (from 4 years of age and u!p) in traditional crafts and food production skills, every Thursday at the Folktown Market from 15th Oct to 29th Oct.

The events will uncover the trades of the people who lived right in the heart of our city and bring old, and often dying, skills to life.

The workshops are free and suitable for all ages. They are drop-in workshops but larger group (4+) can book a session. Please contact Sophior call 07795115132.
