The Memory Store at the HUB with live-scored films presented by Yorkshire Silents

Jars full of memories, tea and cakes and a not so silent movie

On July 27th we will be inviting you to join us for an afternoon of collective remembering to create jars full of memories for our HUB store. In exchange you will be provided with afternoon tea and a variety of nostalgic silent films and local archive material accompanied by an original improvised musical score played on the piano by the wonderful Jonathan Best.

Last summer Slung Low undertook some training to become a Dementia Friendly theatre company, and this training inspired us to become part of the Dementia Action Alliance (DAA) an alliance of over 150 national organisations who connect, share best practice and take action on dementia. In doing so we signed up with three pledges. One of which was to put on an event that specifically welcomes people living with Dementia, their careers, families and friends as well as a wider HUB audience. This is that event. We’d love you to come and spend the afternoon with us to enjoy some tea and cakes and memory making for our store or simply come down for the film screenings.

We’re very excited about this event for many reasons but especially because we get to put our feet up, take part and let a team of 15-17 year olds plan, fundraise and deliver the day as part of their National Citizen Service Social Action.

1:00pm Memory Store and Afternoon Tea

4:00pm Yorkshire Silent Film Festival Screening with live piano acompaniment.

If you’d like to come along then please email sally@slunglow.org to register your interest. If you need any support in terms of access then just let us know and we’ll do our best to meet your needs.

Yorkshire Silent Film Festival takes place each May in cinemas, theatres, arts centres, music and community venues around Yorkshire. The festival’s aim is to celebrate and foster the art of silent film with live musical accompaniment and to increase the opportunities for audiences in Yorkshire and the north to explore and enjoy the art form. The first edition of the festival in 2016 reached more than 2000 people, at least half of whom were experiencing silent film with live music for the first time. The festival works in collaboration with a wide range of exhibition partners from major cinemas and theatres to village halls and community film groups. Overall, each festival aims to achieve a representative selection of places and venues from around Yorkshire, rural and urban, and to work with each venue to present performances suited to each audience. 

The Memory Store was originally created by Bread and Goose to accompany their production of LOST IN THE NEURON FOREST which they performed here at the HUB in 2014.

The Memory Store was created by Bread and Goose to accompany their production of Lost in the Neuron Forest, a theatre production about Alzheimer’s Disease which they performed in the HUB in 2014. Community workshops were held throughout 2014 at Newport Riverfront Arts Centre, Hafan Cafe, Bangor, Age Cymru Caernarfon, Gwynedd Museum & Art Gallery, and Toynbee Hall Wellbeing Centre. The Memory Store has been hosted by Canterbury Christchurch University, Neuadd Ogwen, Wales Millennium Centre, Newport Riverfront Arts Centre, Toynbee Hall Wellbeing Centre, National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery and now resides at Slung Low’s HUB

The project is generously supported by The Wellcome Trust, Arts Council Wales, and Gwanwyn Festival, with thanks to all who have contributed their memories to the store.

'I have put Holbeck in my address for the last two years but today was the first time I discovered the heart of it - I had no idea about the pubs, social clubs, quaint back to back terraces and history that makes up the real Holbeck, south of the canal.  A big thanks to Slung Low for opening my eyes to a place I have claimed to call home.'  - Audience Member
