OLD YARDLEY: YESTERDAY, TODAY, TOMORROW

ARTS CAFE

Old Yardley: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow is our new arts and heritage program to increase access to cultural resources in Yardley for local people. We’re working with the Yardley Conservation Society, Blakesley Hall and St Edburgha’s Church to explore how existing Arts and Heritage spaces in the area are used at present and how local people would like to see them used in the future.

This project is funded by the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
