Shapes of Water, Sounds of Hope

Shapes of Water, Sounds of Hope

The major event of the calendar year involves Pendle Communities coming together in solidarity and celebration of Art and Culture. Bringing together our community in a spirit of shared identity and a celebration of its contribution to the diversity of Pendle. 


A family fun-day which will celebrate people, environment and culture through music, arts and crafts, food stalls, fun fair rides, community conversations and much more. Most invited artists and food vendors are sourced as local as possible in order to really celebrate Pendle and its people. The festival aims to provide an opportunity for as much interaction between people as possible and this is reflected by the fact that all stalls or given a requirement of having some interactive activity on the day. 


Through the year the various organisations that we work with are invited to have some involvement in the festival be it to be part of the planning or help in the delivery of the Festival. This has resulted in collaboration between community organisations, walking groups, musicians and schools. 


The festival provides a great volunteering opportunity to the people of Pendle. A volunteer recruitment drive in the build up to the festival recruits between 20 – 30 volunteers to help out on the day. Many of these people have since continued working with us throughout various projects.
