Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we have had to cancel the Wilsons' show on 18th May. We hope to invite them back in the future when it is safe for BCAC to resume its events programme.

BCAC has commissioned Peak District artist, Sue Prince, to create four murals showing the history of Bamford and the surrounding area.

Sue is featured on Countryfile on 26th January 2020.

Here she is with the Chair of BCAC, David Allwood, showing her designs for the four Bamford panels

The final stage of creation was two open weekends in March when Bamford residents were invited to paint the drawings, creating a vibrant, lasting heritage artwork for future generations.

The project is generously supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund

The project takes shape. This is the top panel of four showing the history and geography of our Parish.

 

 

 

 

 

Here's a detail showing local celebrity, Hannah Mitchell, magistrate, suffragette & author, setting off on her journey to fame. 

 

 

 

 

 

The painting weekends were a great success. Two hundred and fourteen Bamford and local residents of all ages from 6 months to 99 years came to paint the panels.

 

 

 

 

 

Painting the Romans!

 

 

 

 

Knight & Spiers! Peter and John delighted our audience so much when they came and played for us this year that we have invited them to retunr to Bamford when it's safe for us to resume our programme of events
