Celebrating Eccles 2014
Updated - Sunday 9th March 2014
‘Celebrating Eccles’ has been jointly conceived by the Rev. Cyprian Yobera, Rector of Eccles Parish Church and Danny Moloney, Principal of Chrysalis Managed Events during January 2014
The aim and objective of ‘Celebrating Eccles 2014’ is to position Eccles Parish Church (as the historic heart of the community) via a range of inclusive community creative activities, all based and centered physically around the church; as an important and vibrant part of our community
In the future, it is envisaged that ‘Celebrating Eccles‘ will evolve into a broader and inclusive range of community events; encompassing and developing aspects of our diverse and historic Culture, Community, Opportunity & Vision & help to establish the ‘Eccles Global Creative Community’. Our next year Celebrating Eccles is proposed for May 16th & 17th 2015
‘Celebrating Eccles 2014’ weekend (May 17th & 18th) will consist of six major cultural themes;
‘Creative Eccles’ - day time presentations of local creative, artistic and musical talent in music, words, performance, artistry & design, inside and outside Eccles Parish Church along the ‘Creative Trail’.
‘Giving Eccles’ -a chance for everyone and anyone to give something to the Eccles Community ‘StandUp Eccles’ - evening performances of local creative, artistic and musical talent in music, words, performance, artistry & design, inside Eccles Parish Church.
‘Celebrate Eccles Service’-all are welcome to the regular Sunday service at Eccles Parish Church.
‘Together’ Eccles - Eccles has a population of wide diversity of culture and background, we would like to celebrate and affirm this rich variety of peoples who live and work in our town
