Sparrow Hill Project Update!  

Skylight’s National Heritage Lottery Fund project is well underway!  Our young people and Silver Circus volunteers have been researching the history of our neighborhood at Sparrow Hill. We’ve visited St Chad’s Church, had a local tour with Colin Meredith and researched the fantastic treasure trove of resources at local studies!  

We’re now making history by creating a giant pop up book with artist Kerith Ogden!  

“Our group of young people and Silver Circus have uncovered some fascinating stories.  We’re really looking forward to sharing them with you in story telling performances!”

Martine Bradford, Creative Director

      We’ll be publishing some of our discoveries online soon. In the meantime, here’s a little taste of what we’ve been doing!

Thank you St Chad’s!

It was great to have a tour around St Chad’s Parish Church. There were so many fantastic things to see. We learned so much and would like to say a huge thank you to Graham for the very special Tour of St Chad’s Rochdale (click to watch video)!
