Sat 21 - Sun 22 Sep HOD: Saltaire’s Hidden Heroes and Heroines


Find out about Saltaire's Hidden Heroes and Heroines with activities for all the family and seize the chance to see some of the Saltaire Collection.

Saltaire Collection and Saltaire History Club are working together this year to tell the stories of unsung Heroes and Heroines. Sir Titus Salt’s story and influence on the building of Saltaire is well known. However, there are many others who made their mark on Saltaire and those ‘Saltairians’ who made their mark in public life. This exhibition will give the visitor new information about powerful people who are, nonetheless, unsung. The exhibition will feature the engineer who designed the vast interior of Salts Mill, the men who built Saltaire, the women who influenced educational provision in Saltaire and others who used their wealth and/or social position for good and worked to make life better in myriad ways for others.

The exhibition will include a chance to see inside one of the original buildings in Saltaire, explore our new web site, ask questions of local historians. There will be educational activities for children. Be one of the first to use our self-guided tours of Saltaire. and see the village. Our collection does not have a permanent accessible exhibition space, so this is one of the few opportunities for the public to be able to see some fascinating historic artefacts.

Children’s activities – Two guided sessions will be held each day 11am - 12 and 2 – 3pm. There will be help-yourself activities from 10am to 4pm
