Celebration Launch OnTheBanks, Sandygate Square, Weavers’ Triangle
Wednesday 4th November, 2015 6 pm to 8 pm
One of England’s most significant areas of Industrial Heritage at the heart of Burnley is undergoing a huge transformation.
A £100 million project is transforming historic buildings within the Weavers’ Triangle ‘OnTheBanks’ into a vibrant and unique ‘destination’ for business, leisure and education, with an impressive public square. Historic buildings have been sensitively restored with a modern 21st century twist using iconic modern infrastructure.
This Bondholder event was the official ‘OnTheBanks’ launch event from an open marquee on the new £1.3 million public square at Sandygate with the switch on of a Light Art Show created by national artist Jo Fairfax, which has been supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund to create a lasting legacy to our proud industrial heritage, portrayed using the latest projection technology.
