Our Forging Links Project
Following our small local festival & events in 2022, we are now running a National Lottery Arts Council Funding project to Forge Links with neighbouring Wolverhampton & Telford for a Forging Links Festival in 2024 to bring our communities together, celebrating our diversity & shared geographical heritage. This will be at Stokes Barn, in Much Wenlock and activities within those communities throughout the year. To accomplish this, we have appointed 3 engagement coordinators and an Inclusion & accessibility coordinator.
Through pre festival engagement activities of poetry, spoken word, writing, comedy & storytelling we will build on our relationship with local rural schools & develop relationships with schools in Telford & Wolverhampton & also community groups with a particular focus on young people, families & children.
