About the Event
Free event, no booking required
Over the past few months artist, Bob Nutts Jr has been researching the Prestwich & Whitefield Guide (aka The Guide) at Bury Archives, discovering what news and stories made headlines in the area over the past few decades.
He's been interviewing the local people and creating illustrations inspired by his research which will be exhibited at Prestwich Library as The Eyewitnesses Say project over the weekend of the festival - so join him and the staff from the Bury Archives to create your own headline news in the open illustration workshops, look into the local history of the area through the archives with film readers and hear the new stories of Prestwich and Whitefield from the people who have been interviewed.
On the 24th & 25th September we'll be running our creative workshops where you can create your own front page news and illustrations with Bob Nutts Jr at Prestwich Library. You'll also be able to look at local archives for inspiration and visit the Heritage Gallery that has been set up by the Prestwich Heritage Society.
Come on down and join in for half an hour - it's an open workshop and absolutely free.
