ILKLEY LOCKDOWN COMMUNITY QUILT EXHIBITION

24th Jul 2021 - 3rd Oct 2021
11:00 am - 4:00 pm

When the first lockdown happened, Ilkley Manor House Trust felt it was important to capture some of the memories and experiences for the town as part of its social history.

We now have 126 quilt squares created by the community that have been made into 8 quilt banners that will hang in the Manor House as part of the exhibition. The exhibition will also showcase other amazing groups who supported the town during the lockdowns.

As well as the quilts we have also been fortunate to receive a grant from the Make:Film fund from Bradford Council. We used this to make a short film called ‘Stories behind the Squares’ and this will premier at the exhibition.

We hope to open Thursdays & Fridays as well as our usual Saturdays and Sundays but please check the website before you plan your visit.

Free Admission.
