Professional musicians Chris Ruffoni, Jade Harris and Jessie Whyke have been working with the children at Castle Hill School to develop a brand new song about Huddersfield.

Funded by Historic England in partnership with Live Music Now and Huddersfield High Street Action Zone, the first public performance will take place at Brian Jackson House on Friday July 15 at 4.30pm.

The event will also include performances by local artists Birds & Beasts and Anna Rafferty and the first public screening of the theatre piece ‘The Town That Bought Itself’, produced by Proper Job Theatre Company for last year’s Heritage Open Days.

Free refreshments will be available.

Ellen Harrison, head of creative programmes and campaigns at Historic England, said: “We’re delighted to have commissioned Live Music Now to co-create new musical pieces across six High Street Heritage Action Zones, bringing live performances to the high street this summer.

“Each piece will be shaped by local people and their experiences of their neighbourhood, so we’re delighted to be working with a diverse cast of musicians and community groups to express their pride of place through music.”

Tickets are free, but must be booked in advance. The deadline for booking is 12noon on Friday July 15 – so be quick!
