Market Place, Grantham
Thursday 12 to Saturday 14 September 2019
The bridge will be in Market Place, Grantham, from Thursday 12 to Saturday 14 September 2019.
Visit the Bridge by day and enjoy a series of free events and experiences:
Under the Bridge: The Bridge is the setting for performances, workshops and conversations, as Grantham's artistic and community groups respond to the ‘bridge’ theme. Check out the blackboard to find out what’s happening today.
An Experience in Two Parts: Take a pair of headphones and find out the meaning of the broken bridge. As with every good story, there are two sides to listen to – you can choose to experience either or both. This experience lasts for ten minutes, with multiple sessions throughout the day. Check the blackboard for details.
Bridge Stories podcast: Sit in front of the bridge, watch the world go by and listen to a 10 minute podcast collection of stories collected from people in Grantham, Coventry and Worcester about bridge-building and bridge-burning.
Grantham Arts Trail – Making Art Accessible to All: Grantham's new Arts Trail make art accessible to those who wouldn’t normally visit an exhibition space. The aim is to inspire people to get creative and show that art doesn’t just happen behind closed doors in exclusive spaces – it’s for everyone. The Grantham Arts Trail launches during Bridge.
Hidden Story Portraits – Bridging the Difference: Grantham photographer Emilie Nunn has taken a series of portraits of local people who are part of Bridge. She combines her images with text to tell their stories and show what unites a seemingly disparate group of people. These portraits will be exhibited around the town centre during the Bridge weekend.
