Saltaire Arts Trail: Sat 5 - Mon 7 May
Saltaire Arts Trail  

Open Houses Sat 5, Sun 6 & Mon 7 May 10am – 5pm
The Open Houses trail challenges the concept of art galleries. Residents and local artists across Saltaire village open up their Grade II listed homes, letting you enjoy contemporary art by both local artists and artists selected from across the UK. The Open Houses provide a unique chance to see art and meet the artists in an intimate, domestic setting, whilst getting a glimpse of life behind the doors of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. In most cases the art will be available to buy or commission.

Makers Fair

World Heritage Day, 2018


Dear History Club Members,

On Sat 21 Apr, the Club is playing its part in an event organised by Bradford Council & others, marking the return of cannons to Roberts Park. The event will be staged 10 am - 4 pm.

In 1871, Sir Titus Salt bought two cannons as original features for Saltaire Park, later renamed Roberts Park. They were scrapped during WW2.

To celebrate World Heritage Day, the cannons will return on a day with a WW1 theme. There’ll be a military camp, a concert in the bandstand, and the History Club will be on hand to tell you about the impact of WW1 on Saltaire.
Further info is given on the attached poster.

Oh, and the park will be at its usual brilliant best: children’s playground, skateboarding, acres of grass to play on, a lovely café…
It’s FREE and you don’t need to book.

Hope to see you there!
Best wishes 
Dave (Shaw) on behalf of Saltaire History Club
