Barnaby’s back



Barnaby Artist in Residence
Poet Ailsa Holland is working on 2 projects as Artist in Residence. The first is Back Wallgate Books, inspired by her Library in the Landscape at Tegg’s Nose and love of books. Ailsa will be transforming two mysterious brick alcoves into a tiny urban library down one of Macclesfield’s cobbled streets.

Macclesfield is blessed with Hills Up Streets, the Peak District views that emerge as a corner is turned. These spots are marked with Ailsa’s words, inviting a moment of contemplation for her second Barnaby project and they are both part of the Festival Walking Trail.

Acoustic Sanctuary
Get your tickets for an evening of unplugged music. Gideon Conn headlines a line-up of some of Macclesfield’s finest talent at King Edward Street Chapel on Friday 24 June 8-11.30pm. Tickets are £10 each, get them here.
Secret House Concerts
Five families open up their homes to host specially tailored events. In the House of Curiosities we discover an intriguing organ that sits proudly in the family living room. Will this be part of the intimate performance? Find out more about the series.
