With strong and generous backing from the Lowry Partnership we have the use of a substantial space in the Black Dyke Mills complex. We are all volunteers. With the mill owner’s generous backing, we have created a performance area, a cafe area and a space for exhibitions, market.
Our series of gigs aims to promote the music heritage of Queensbury and we’re particularly interested in people performing their own music, either local emerging talent or more established artists from further afield.
In our first year we hosted a wide range of performers including Fiona-Katie Roberts, internationally acclaimed harpist and Seth Bennett, brilliant on double bass, Roger Davies, singer/songwriter. Rakish Paddy led a ceilidh and Play for Ale also kept feet tapping. See our past events page for reviews and posters of many other performers.
We’ve had some famous visitors too!
