Mikron Theatre at Stirley Farm – All Hands On Deck

A love story between the Royal Navy and their loyal ‘Jenny Wrens’. New WRNS recruits Ginger and Lily are looking for wartime adventure. Lily wants to serve on dry land but Ginger is desperate to serve at sea – and the sailors can’t believe their luck! Our Wrens show pays tribute to all those wartime women who pushed the door to opportunity firmly open. Full of dots, dashes, semaphore and song, Ginger and Lily find themselves in uncharted waters on a journey they’ll never forget.

Saturday 25th May 2019 from 12.30pm to 4.30pm at Stirley Community Farm, Off Hall Bower Lane, Huddersfield HD4 6RP. Organised by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.

Democracy Club | Elections data party

Let’s get together to help voters!

Thursday 4th April 2019 from 6pm to 9pm at The Media Centre, 7 Northumberland Street, Huddersfield HD1 1RL

Want to do something practical to improve our local democracy? Join Democracy Club’s volunteers to help gather and publish better information about who you can vote for, ahead of the 2019 local elections in England and Northern Ireland.

We all need to know who we can vote for. But it’s not always easy to find out about your candidates.

At this event, we’ll be taking candidate lists that councils publish and turning this information into useful data that anyone can use.

The information that we gather during the event will then be available to voters via a website called Who Can I Vote For? and via many other websites and apps.

You don’t need any technical knowledge or experience to take part, just a laptop.

Drinks and snacks provided. Drop in at any time.

Register to take part in the Democracy Club event
