An exciting programme of activities surrounding the history of a Georgian building in the Moorlands has been unveiled.

Following the news that the Foxlowe Arts Centre in Leek has received a National Lottery grant of £100,000 for urgent repairs to the Foxlowe building – a programme of heritage and arts activities designed to tell the story of Foxlowe and its inhabitants over 250 years has also been drawn up.

Borderland Voices, Buxton & Leek College, Leek & District Historical Society, and the Northern International Theatre are all involved in helping to deliver the programme which is set to include: delving deeper into certain aspects of the Foxlowe’s history including when it used to be the base for the area’s Textile Union, and way before that, when it was the home of lawyer Thomas Mills – who the property was built for.

Other activities are to include the production of a show and also a book – both focusing on the Foxlowe Story.
