Join us at the Saltaire Festival this coming week…

So the annual Saltaire Festival is almost upon us, and this year the Multi–Story Water project has two contributions to the festivities — we hope you’ll be able to join us.


First up is Pleasant Valley Saltaire, on the opening weekend of the festival — Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th September. Billed as a “magical mystery tour”, this is a collaboration between MSW’s Steve Bottoms and local poet and storyteller Irene Lofthouse (Fresh Aire Productions). It also features various surprise guests along the way. Led by a mad professor and a water sprite, the performance maps out a gentle, circular walk through Saltaire village and out into some of the surrounding Aire valley neighbourhoods (Hirst Wood, Higher Coach Road). There’ll be some non-threatening audience participation, and some interventions both natural and supernatural! The journey starts at 2pm from outside Saltaire Visitor Information Centre. And it’s free! All welcome.

Then, on the evening of Tuesday 15th September, at Half Moon Cafe…

salts watersThis is a follow-up to a successful event with the same title that Eddie Lawler and I did for last year’s festival. We were asked to do it again, as an opportunity for Half Moon Cafe to again show off their tasting menu… We’ll be presenting some of our stories and songs from last year, and also some new material in a new “mix”. Please do join us for an intimate, atmospheric evening…

  1. many thanks to all of you who joined us for the first performance of Pleasant Valley Saltaire this afternoon. We welcome any feedback you have, please just reply to this chain… Thanks! Mad Prof and Water Sprite xx

  2. Hi, I just wanted to feedback and say what a fantastic time we had on the pleasant valley saltaire afternoon on Saturday. I was with a bunch of friends from a York Meetup group, some with links to bradford/leeds, but we all loved the performance. The information and seeing some beautiful parts of Saltaire was spot on, and getting the sun to come out bang on time was very well planned 🙂
    If you could add me to an emailing list we’d love to come to future events you might be planning.
