August’s First Friday – A reflection

Well what a First Friday we had on Friday! We must admit it was probably our favourite First Friday of the year.

We kicked off the day with Make a Marvellous Mosaic at Lancaster City Museum which saw local youngsters making some fantastic mosaics.

Them Two Dance met some of the lovely people of Lancaster at The Dukes Cafe before heading off to deliver Random Acts of Kindness around the City. They brought smiles and laughter to many people, our particular highlight was a couple in Market Square being given their own private dance show!

There was lots of fun being had at Water Stones with budding authors and bookworms meeting authors Leila Rasheed and Pete Kalu.

Children and adults where captivated at Lancaster City Museum when they met Mildred, Harriet and Henry who transported them on a beautiful journey through the museum (with lots of dusting!).

Market Square was transformed by the arrival of The East Street Gamelan. Young and Old came to play and to create music together.

Crowds of people gathered to watch Ludus Youth Dance Company wow with their surreal performance of Encore.

The fantastic HandleBards wheeled their way to Lancaster Castle bringing all of the cast, props, scenery and costumes on 5 bicycles. They left the audience crying with laughter!

The Dukes sparkled with glamour at the screening of Ab Fab the movie, it was truly fabulous!

Ludus Dance was full to bursting as people came from near and far to watch Yea Big before they jetted off to inspire at the Edinburgh Fringe.

There was more mouth watering food at Radish (best brioche/pretzel buns ever!) to accompany fantastic art work by Molly Bland which was snapped up by the admiring audience.

Art lovers were queuing out of the door at Sound and Vision to see the new local art work on display.

Visitors poured into The Storey to see the Summer exhibition of Luneside Studios, beautiful and varied art work was on display.

Those that couldn’t bear the thought of First Friday ending headed over to The Wagon and Horses to finish their evening listening to Dirty Hands.

Wow, what a Friday! And now we’re planning September’s First Friday which be happening half in Lancaster and half in Morecambe, exciting times!
