Commoners Choir at Wainsgate

3pm Wainsgate Chapel

Commoners Choir is a rag bag assortment of ne'er-do-wells, misfits, and cake eaters who have come together from all corners of the globe to sing harmonious insurrection, to rouse the rabble and to raise a smile or two. They are a singing newspaper: They sing about stuff that happens, stuff that should be happening, stuff that matters.

Commoners Choir formed in 2015 with a walk up to the summit of Kinder Scout in the Peak District (to commemorate the Mass Trespassers of 1932), and sang their entire repertoire (two songs) to a handful of startled hikers. From such small acorns, mighty oaks have grown.

The Silk Road - The Legendary Trading Route

With speaker Jane Ashby

Todmorden u3a Meeting at the Todmorden Learning Centre and Community Hub - Tod College at 2pm. 


This Talk covers the history of the most famous trading route to the present day. A fascinating part of the world, which for many is not known. Its influence on Europe throughout the ages is incalculable.
3,000 miles through Central Asia by train, encompassing three countries, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. A history of this extraordinary part of the world which, in centuries past, was the centre of trade and science. Slides of the beauty of Mausoleums in magical Samarkand and Bukhara.

Seni Seneviratne at Wainsgate

Renaissance One presents Unknown Soldier

7pm

A moving one-woman performance and multi-media installation which brings to life the hidden family narrative of poet-artist Seni Seneviratne and her father's experiences as a Royal Signalman in the North African Desert War.

At the heart of the story is a photo-album, the only surviving record of a friendship between two signalmen: one Seni's father, a young man from colonial Ceylon, the other an unknown photographer. It explores her father's return from the war, his marriage to a Yorkshire woman and family life in Leeds.

The show is based on the poetry collection Unknown Soldier (Peepal Tree, 2019) by Seneviratne and forms part of the Unknown Soldier Tour 2023. It has been created with direction consultancy by Amanda Huxtable, filming and editing by Gavin Repton, image and sound design by James Waring, curation support by Melanie Abrahams, film and voice recordings by Rav Sanghera and Simon Marshall and production by Renaissance One. Funded by Arts Council England.

Reviving Her

A powerful new dance-theatre show about young, Northern female empowerment and identity.

Stumbling upon a cavernous space, we meet 6 women.

Disoriented and confused, they try to make sense of the space they've found themselves in. Something is different. What was familiar now feels strange. Left in their solitude, they embark on a reflective and intimate journey, visiting their past, present and future selves.

Told in the brave, fearless and honest voices of young women from Yorkshire, Reviving Her is a call to arms; a battle cry for a world where women can resurrect their authentic selves. To a place of love, acceptance and strength.

What does it mean to be a young woman in today's society?

Square Chapel Arts Centre
