Warehouse Weekend

For the last few days, weeks, months I've been working alongside my associate theatre company Threadneedle to find acting, writing and designing talent in and around Huddersfield to take part in the first ever Huddersfield Arts Festival, the Warehouse Weekend. As the name suggests, the event took place in a mill, a huge concrete and breeze-block environment that complemented Threadneedle's ethos very well- taking theatre out of the theatre and encouraging un-arty types to get involved. We had an amazing day, constantly being surprised by the sheer amount of hidden talent in Huddersfield. There was a lounge area created by the Fresh Kids where you could make your mark in black paint on the white panelled walls, a light bar made of huge water canisters that changed colour using a touchscreen on the bar, a stunning bamboo maze, a theatre and film corner featuring experimental film, physical theatre, dance and mime, an exhibition of 1000 hand painted beermats and so much more! Thank you to everyone who took part and those who came to show their support, you really made the day wonderful.
