The Orange Lilies project runs until July 2017, and we have free events and activities taking place throughout the rest of the project.
We have been uploading memories and research to our project website which we’d love you to view.
Visit and view our textiles banner about the impact of the Somme on the city, and a selection of films made by young people about the centenary of the battle in an exhibition of our work at Jubilee Library in the Youth area from now until 4th July.

We’ve been having a bit of a spring clean here at Strike a Light, and have changed the look and feel of our website.
It’s our first proper update since 2010! We think it’s cleaner and more fresh now. You’ll be able to find more functions, easier accessibility and a more obvious structure to it. We’re just rolling it out now, so bear with us whilst we check for glitches and what not, but hopefully they will be few and far between.
Social media is more obvious as it now sits on each page and you can catch up with our Twitter feed more easily. You can also see which themes are most popular on the Strike a Light site through our tag cloud. There are more photos, resources and text to look through too.
Get in touch if you have any comments or suggestions, we’re happy to keep on tweaking. And most importantly, we hope you like it!
A video interview with some of the project managers involved with the Rendezvous project at Fabrica gallery here. I was away so was spared hearing myself speak!
The funding for this from the Arts Council has now come to an end. The events and activities from the project will be much missed as a result.
Information about the project is available on the project specific Growing an Older Audience website.
Strike a Light and Fabrica are currently in talks with a view to submitting further funding for other kinds of related project activities in 2015 and 2016.
