The South Pennines is bursting with creativity. Why wouldn’t it be? Our industrial heritage of spinning and weaving lives on in the work of textile artists and designer-makers. The uplands with their rocky outcrops, reservoirs and swathes of heather inspire artists and photographers. Even our higgledy-piggedly houses make it on to canvas.
And then there’s contemporary ceramics; jewellery; music from traditional brass bands to modern jazz; literature from the Brontes to Simon Armitage. The South Pennines has got the lot and we’ll use this space to tell you all about it.
