Colourful ideas wanted for this Summer’s Handmade Parade

Would you like to see worker ants invading St George’s Square, Bridge Gate awash with crazy inventions or Calder Holmes Park becoming a time travel hub? If so, now’s the chance to make it happen.

We are holding a Spark Day on Saturday March 21 from 1.30pm-3.30pm at the parade workshops in Victoria Road.

Everyone is welcome and we’d like as many people as possible to come along with their bright ideas – the crazier the better!

Chairperson of our Community Interest Company, Linda Green, invites you to join in, saying:

“The parade has become one of the most important fixtures on the Hebden Bridge calendar. Last year’s Endangerous Expedition was a huge success and brought Blue Peter to the town, and we can’t wait to get started with this year’s parade. We’d also like to say a huge thank you to Hebden Royd Town Council and Arts Council England for their continued support. We couldn’t put on such an amazing display and bring thousands of people into the town without them”. 

2015 will see the eighth annual Handmade Parade and many of the previous themes have been chosen by the public, so please get your thinking caps on and come along to the Spark Day where you’ll be able to draw or write your ideas for this year’s theme.

If anyone can’t attend the Spark Day but would like to contribute, you can email your ideas to or post them to Handmade Parade, Unit 5 Victoria Works, Victoria Road, Hebden Bridge, HX7 8LN.
