Sat 21 Sep HOD: People Power - Daring to Dream


Bring the past into the present through Craftivism. Follow the tradition of Parson Bull, Minister to Beirley from 1826 - 1839 as pupils from St John's CE School open the challenge to 'Dare to Dream' and make a difference through people power.

Parson Bull was horrified at the plight of children working in the factories around Bierley. He joined with men such as Oastler, Sadler, Fielden and Lord Shaftesbury to limit the working hours of factory children. Year 6 pupils, who would once have been those 'factory children', will stand as advocates for the children around the world who are still exploited in textile production. Listen to their dream of ending a throw away fashion culture which damages lives and the planet. Share their dream to re-use, repurpose and recycle or share a dream of your own.
