Charnwood are delighted to welcome the fourth annual Loogabarooga Festival to our wonderful town of Loughborough.
This year, the Festival is celebrating 80 years of the iconic comic The Beano and is honoured to host an Exhibition of Comic Art by John Patrick Reynolds at the Charnwood Museum.
They are pleased to showcase local and nationally renowned authors, storytellers and illustrators, whose work gives Loogabarooga its unique and charming character and we’re thrilled to have the support of local businesses, who have thrown themselves into the Festival with enthusiasm and imagination.
A painting workshop is being held in the Village Hall on Saturday 7th July 11.00 am until 5.00 pm.
This is being run by Jayne Good with help from Kate McKenna.
A new exhibition from Charnwood Arts and Loughborough University comes to two Loughborough venues in the coming weeks
Called Re-Making History, this is the fourth project that Charnwood Arts has run with Loughborough University’s School of the Arts English and Drama.
The resulting exhibition features contemporary textiles design inspired by the industrial and social history of the Loughborough area.
This year the first year textiles students were given a brief to explore Loughborough and the surrounding area, seeking out its rich heritage in UK textile production along with other industries such as bell founding and transport.
Around 90 students undertook the project and 31 were selected for the exhibitions. The work on display includes pages from the students sketch books and final samples.
The exhibition can be seen over two venues in Loughborough:
The first runs at Charnwood Museum, Granby Street, Loughborough from 16th April – 10th June
The second can be seen at the Martin Hall Gallery, Loughborough University: 25th April – 23rd May
2018 marks 100 years since the Representation of the People Act gave voting rights to some women for the first time. Charnwood Arts, in partnership with Chorus Theatre, have created the “Deeds Not Words Festival” to celebrate this landmark moment in British history through theatre, music, talks and walks.
This project has been made possible thanks to support from the Heritage Lottery Fund and will run in various venues throughout Loughborough from May 2nd-6th.
The “Deeds Not Words Festival” offers an eclectic mix of talks, music and storytelling to bring this fascinating section of history to life.
