We had our second celebration event last week at Cradley Heath Library where we shared some of the lovely work produced as part of the project. This included a performance of Yamlet by Little Earthquake Theatre, a performance of new work about local dialect by poet Heather Wastie, and a film with local voices and images produced by Geoff Broadway.

It’s been a busy time for the ‘Where’s Our Spake Gone?’ as we move into the final 4 months of this 2 year-long project. Please read on below to find out what we have been up to.
We made a short interview with writer Mandy Ross, asking her about her work on the project with various groups around Oldbury that included Young at Heart, Langley Lodge; Year 4 pupils at George Betts School; The Cancer Support Group at Jack Judge House; and KS2 year groups Y3-Y6 at St Huberts Infant and Junior School.
Recorded and edited by Geoff Broadway.
