On Saturday 11th September we hosted our 2021 Heritage Open Day! After being cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic, the festival was back and better than ever!
Together, with local arts collective, Underbank Studios, we hosted a range of heritage activities for all the family. This included a comic book workshop with Meraki Comics, tote bag screen printing with Bee’s Bench, devil mask making with Beth Chambers, a collage workshop with Lily Windsor Walker and a community chalk floor mural!
The Underbanks were buzzing as local record shop, SK1 Records, filled the street with music. Seven Miles Out also took visitors on a Stockport Music Tour, stopping at our new Jimi Hendrix mural to talk about the time he played a gig at the Sinking Ship nightclub on Royal Oak Yard.
Visitors were also able to explore the Heritage Centre in St. Mary’s Church and the Stockport Dungeons thanks to Stockport Heritage Trust who dressed in traditional Victorian attire.
There was even a selection of delicious French pastries for sale from Bistro Marc who will be opening at Winter’s in early 2022.
