Keighley cinema hosted young film festival

This April, Keighley Creative and The Unit welcomed some new movie-goers to its teeny Stockroom Cinema.

Leeds Film contacted us about using our pop-up cinema to offer Keighley families a unique cinema experience over the Easter holidays.

Screenings put on were part of the Leeds Young Film Festival (LYFF) and included 80s’ fantasy classic Labyrinth, the Roald Dahl animation Fantastic Mr Fox and the still popular cartoon Moomins. Most popular was the unique Marcel the Shell with shoes on who entertained viewers both young and old.

Thanks so much to the team at Leeds Film and our fabulous bunch of volunteers for putting on such a great series of events.

Eggsellent crafting at Easter workshop

Saturday 30th March we welcomed lots of Keighley families to our market workshop.

The Easter Craft Eggstravaganza was supported by the Keighley Creative team, Keighley Market and Bradford Council and our facilitators, Emily and Demi, helped lots of local children make some eggsellent Easter themed mosaics.

The event was a great success with lots of attendees. The children loved getting creative with the crafting and having their face painted. There was even a surprise appearance from the Easter bunny!
