Treacle with eggs

A natural combination this weeked at least!

The Treacle Market falls on Easter day so alongside bumper stalls of glorious food and drink there will be Story telling in a gorgeous tent from the Just So Story tellers ( buy ickets for the festival too), a crazy egg race and egg rolling too ( organised by the Rotary Club) and great music all day from The Maddocks, Ian Haigh and Irish folk from The Hacklers.

If cocolate eggs are too childish for you, try a chocolate cup of home made fruit liqueur. Yes really! 

Bring a big basket, a sun hat, your dogs and children ( optional ) for a very special Treacle day.

Easter bonnets optional.

Puppet workshop today

A word from Barnaby:
Puppet Workshops
Giant Puppets of Macclesfield's Treacletown Twelve are going to be striding along with the Parade. Our Parade artist Jacki Clark is running a second workshop at our new premises on  Saturday 16th April 1.30- 5pm. 

Come along to work with Jacki, find out how to make the structure yourself – it can be collapsed to make it easily portable – and learn the techniques to add features and clothing according to the era that you are working with. The same techniques can be used to make smaller puppets too!

Our Barnaby Parade Workshops is on South Park Road (the old driving test centre). This has been loaned to us by Resources for Business. The address is
South Park Road, Macclesfield, SK11 6SH

If you turn by the Co Op chemists on Park Lane, the building is on your right, opposite the old St John's School building, access to the workshop is round the side through large double doors, there will be an Easel outside with the Barnaby Logo.

Next weekend we'll be at:

In science and now in poetry, a bell jar is ‘a safe space in which to conduct experiments.’ Winning Words offers a six-week online course with poet Jo Bell. Exercises and wordsparks to interest and challenge poets at all levels, and a showcase for new work. Friendly, supportive and lively writing; join a new writing community from your own home.
Jo Bell is a poet and literature development worker, whose projects take her across the UK. Formerly an industrial archaeologist, she lives on a narrowboat in the NW of England. She is the director of National Poetry Day, and her poetry has been published in journals including Magma and Iota. Her latest publication Bugged brings together writers such as Stuart Maconie, Ian Marchant and Jenn Ashworth, in a collection of work based on overhearings.
