    Cheshire East has launched SHIFT – a brand new borough-wide programme celebrating digital arts and tech in 2017 and beyond. Featuring a jam-packed series of events and hands-on activities, from exhibitions, installations and workshops to talks, tech meet ups and pop-up maker stations - SHIFT is bursting full of inspiring and creative things to do, see, create and experience for novices and professionals alike, of all ages and abilities.

    Whether you're a code loving kid, a techie beginner or whizz, a family in search of something new or even a digital pro making the next award-winning app – these forthcoming events offer something for all across the region.

    Discovering and experiencing the digital world in unique and surprising places is very much at the heart of SHIFT and with this in mind, its opening commission is the Premiere of Living Sculpture (Virtual), on Platform 6 at Crewe Station from Monday 10th March.

    Laurence-Payot-Artist-Portrait artist portrait

    This digital and interactive installation has been created by award-winning, Liverpool based artist Laurence Payot who uses the public realm as a stage to make out-of-the-ordinary things happen.Through this brand new piece, the artist invites the visitor to interact with the art work to bring it to life. Fusing the traditional craft of drapery fabric and an old illusion technique, with coding and LEAP motion tracking, the artwork and the visitor come together to create a breathing piece of material. Two ‘players’ can interact with each other through the cloth, as it changes shape, texture, and colour. Interactive coded sound is also manipulated in the process.

    SHIFT clicks into action for families from February half term with a family programme designed to inspire little people with big ideas and digital dreams. From February 20th both Crewe Library and Macclesfield Print Mill will run a fantastic and fun series of digital maker sessions, workshops and activities introducing new technologies to mini makers across Cheshire East. All sessions – including wearable tech, art with conductive ink and circuit making - will get brains buzzing and fingers flapping over keyboards, coding and crafts.   Additional themes for family half term events during the year include: future cities, transport and food; bio-hacking; e-textiles and ethical hacking.

    Artists One Five West embark on an ambitious, interactive, community-led oral histories project in Bollington from 2-4 June. Tales of the Town brings together the artists with local anthropologist, Zak Tanaml and Bollington residents. Between them they are capturing local tales to be transformed into sacred storytelling objects created by the One Five West Collective, These will be displayed in different locations across the town centre, created and inspired by the natural landscape, people of the town, and local industry; such as cotton and lace, wood and wool. People walking in front of these objects will trigger sensor technology, and when activated the recorded stories will be played for those to hear. Join the artists at Bollington Arts Centre Family Day on June 3 to uncover the secrets behind their work.

    SHIFT is delighted to join forces with The National Trust when a brand new digital art installation is launched at Little Moreton Hall - its iconic Tudor Mansion in Congleton - from 26 July. This brand new, site specific work will be created in response the property’s stunning building, setting, moat and manicured garden as part of the ‘Trust New Art’ Programme also funded by Arts Council England. This programme offers new interpretations of the charity’s historical properties and will also feature an accompanying events programme.

    Several new works of art and installations will be launched throughout the SHIFT programme - sited throughout Cheshire East in public spaces, unused buildings and historical properties.  They have been invited and developed through an open call as well as in collaboration with the programme partners.

    Digital discovery will take place right across the region throughout the coming year, offering everybody – from artists, tech professionals, schools, students, families and anybody in between - the opportunity to learn, take-part, have fun and uncover the wonders of all things tech. In partnership with FACT – the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology in Liverpool – SHIFT is delighted to announce its FUTURES PROGRAMME. This is a mobile maker space which will bring interactive activities to where they are least expected, from rural markets, to urban high street - making engagement with the digital world as accessible as possible. The programme will feature a mix of pop-in, drop-in sessions, coding and gaming workshops to more formal day long courses for students and professionals.

    Kicking off at the Sandbach Transport Festival (22-23 April), FACT’s mobile maker platform will enable visitors to imagine the future of transport through hands-on activities. Throughout the spring and summer, the programme will visit Congleton, Crewe, and the Just So Festival at Rode Hall - offering a number of eclectic workshops from speculative design to future cities and more.

    Jean Alexander: Becoming Hilda

    The Old Sunday School, 3 July - 23 September

    Born Jean Hodgkinson in 1926, she went on to become one of the most beloved characters of our longest running TV soap, and it all started here in Macclesfield.

Packed full of photographs illustrating her life and work, this display recounts the story that led her to play Hilda Ogden in Coronation Street.

     

    Inspired by India

    The Silk Museum, until 8 September

    An exhibition and activity programme celebrating the UK/India year of culture,

    Exploring the museum’s significant and beautiful textile collections; the exhibition uncovers the work of Macclesfield’s Thomas Wardle who taught artist William Morris about natural dyes; both men being ‘inspired by India’. The legacy of Indian silk comes through in the work of students at the School of Art, at the Embroidery Schools and through the Arts and Crafts movement.

    Artist Nikki Parmenter has worked with local community groups and schools to illustrate the colour and imagery of this creative relationship. Her centrepiece is the ‘Silk Peacock’, the national bird of India, which incorporates Indian symbolism, Wardle’s designs and Morris’ patterns.

    Lyme Hall, Lyme Park, Disley, Nr Stockport

    Distant view of the South Front of Lyme Park, designed by Giacomo Leoni and constructed 1729-1732, with lake in the foreground.

    The 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death will be commemorated at Lyme from 17 – 23 July with a week of special events. The National Trust attraction in Disley is the fitting place to celebrate Austen’s life as Lyne was placed firmly in the Jane Austen story when scenes for the BBC’s adaptation of Pride and Prejudice were filmed at the property. Lyme will be turning back the clock this July to allow visitors to experience the Regency period, the era in which Jane would’ve first put her words on page, through live music, performances, Regency regalia and afternoon tea.

    Caroline Heap, Lyme’s Visitor Experience Manager said, ‘Tuesday 18 July marks a key anniversary in the life and times of this remarkable writer and we wanted to play our part in celebrating this literary hero. Her iconic novel ‘Pride and Prejudice’ remains one of Britain’s best loved books and especially dear to us at Lyme, the home of Pemberley and the scene of Mr Darcy in that iconic wet shirt scene. Commemorating this great Regency scholar also allows us to tell Lyme’s other stories this year, as we celebrate explorer Thomas Legh, who loved and developed Lyme in the Regency era when Jane would’ve been writing. Thomas was an exciting lover of adventure who came into his fortune young, just like Mr. Darcy!’

    Included in the programme of events will be a one-woman show called Jane Austen at Home consisting entirely of Jane’s words, devised and directed by Stephen Siddall. The performance will reveal the variety and wit of Jane’s writing, full of warm hearted, perceptive and often humorous observations of life in the early nineteenth century. An expert from the Jane Austen Society will also be giving insightful talks on how Austen’s classic novel ‘Pride and Prejudice’ came to be written. For specific dates and times of performances visitors are encouraged to check the website.

    To truly embrace all things Regency the Salting Room Tea Parlour at Lyme will be inviting visitors to sit back, relax and enjoy a their Regency Afternoon Teas. Visitors arriving to ‘take tea’ in Regency dress will be given free park entry on the day.

    Jane Austen Week at Lyme runs from 17 – 23 July 2017, vehicle admission applies, cars £8, National Trust members park free. All events must be pre-booked via the website. Details and full programme at http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/lymepark

    For afternoon tea bookings call 01663 761400.

    From 19 to 23 July, the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park will return to Cheshire’s spectacular 1,000-acre deer park for one of the North’s calendar highlights. The Great Garden Party will play host to spectacular Show Gardens, Water Gardens, Back to Back Gardens, and an array of Grow-Your-Own inspiration.

    This RHS Young Designer of the Year competition will return once again to give young inspiring garden designers, aged 28 years and under, the chance to kick-start their careers and gain exposure at a prestigious RHS Flower Show. A constant nurturer of young talent, RHS Tatton acts as a platform for inspirational new designers to get a head start in horticulture, with many going on to design at other Shows, such as Hugo Bugg and Sam Ovens, who went on to exhibit at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

    In addition, the much loved Back-to-Back Gardens, which returned to RHS Tatton in 2015 after a three year absence, will showcase clever designs ideal for small spaces, inspiring visitors to get stuck in and transform their own green spaces at home.

    A host of other Show favourites, such as the RHS National Flower Bed Competition and much-loved Cheshire Gardens of Distinction, will also feature, along with live demonstrations from some familiar faces in the Feast Theatre and amazing Great British Allotments exhibits.

    The ever-popular Ladies Day will also be hosted at the show on Friday 21 July, offering a range of rousing talks from inspiring women in horticulture and a botanically influenced fashion show.

    With all of this, as well as some amazing local exhibitors, visitors are sure to have a great day out at this year’s RHS Flower Show Tatton Park.
