The Wonderful Whitaker 60’s Project – Let Your Child Be A Part of It!


Two Rossendale organisations, Wonderful Things and The Whitaker, are joining forces at the end of the Summer holidays to offer two afternoons of sixties singing and art. The afternoons, which will be on 30th and 31st August, are aimed at primary aged children in Rossendale who will have the chance to create a wonderful spectacle to launch the Rossendale 60’s Festival on Friday 9th September 2016

Each afternoon starts at 1pm with an hour of singing, fun and games. The second hour will be spent making sixties creations. The third hour will be a choir workshop with Sean Ruane. Sean will deliver a workshop designed to engage all the young people attending, and create a collection of iconic Sixties songs to sing to the public at the Rossendale 60’s Festival launch at The Whitaker on the evening of 9th September. Last year’s choir was one of the highlights of the first night of the Festival and the audience thoroughly enjoyed listening to the songs and seeing the art work created at the Whitaker. If you would like your children to be involved in this Fab experience, please contact Kate Crane at
