Hecate Arts want to make a snowstorm, Do you want to make snowflakes?

As part of a brand new and exciting festive community arts project in Matlock called ‘No Two the Same’ we’re going to transform the unloved and underused market hall into a beautiful woodland glade by decorating it with snowflakes made by people from in and around Matlock,
The event will take place over the weekend of the Matlock Christmas Market 16/17th December and will feature storytelling from local favourite Rachel Murray in a specially constructed woodland glade within the Market Hall.

Artistic Director of the project Sarah Bradnock said:
‘We were looking for an opportunity to create something fresh and new in Matlock and Derbyshire Dales District Council offered us the use of the Market Hall over the Christmas Market weekend which fell into place perfectly, we really want to see the Market Hall being used much more for this sort of community event so we are hoping for lots of support in creating loads of wonderful unique snowflakes and seeing plenty of visitors over the weekend, it’s a chance to take a new look at how the space is used and who knows what the future could bring”

Everyone is the area is invited to get involved by making their own snowflakes, 1, 10 or 100 out of whatever you like, drop them off at one of our collection points at Bridge News or In the Flow in Crown Square by Friday the 10th December and Hecate Arts will work their magic on the Market Hall.
Drop into and see them in the Market Hall during Matlock Christmas Market Weekend 16th and 17th December where they will create the backdrop for the story of Father Frost, written and performed by local artists.
Hecate Arts are aiming for a thousand snowflakes; can you help reach this target?
