A new mini festival aimed at bringing local people together
The Spirit of Little Hulton Festival is a new event delivered by Little Hulton Big Local whose vision is to unite Little Hulton as a community and to enhance local people's health and well-being.
Over 500 people attended this inaugural festival which was staged in Peel Park, Little Hulton, one of Greater Manchester's oldest parks which opened back in 1910.
For this mini festival we worked with artists, volunteers and local people to create a great day out with some fun activities aimed at promoting healthy eating and active lifestyles. This included an alternative 'vegetable show' with a tombola, games and a pedal-powered smoothie bike.
With events like this we like to get people talking and mixing with each other, so we had an artist-led creative workshop which engaged members of the public in conversation while they were making 'vegetable hats'. And, as well as a photographer, we were joined by a local illustrator to capture the event through drawings.

"The first Spirit of Little Hulton Festival was a great little event with a big heart which attracted a good sized crowd and brought people of all ages together. It's exactly the kind of small scale event, led and created by local people, which empower communities to stage festivals such as this which create that important sense of togetherness.'
