We were delighted to be part of the team collecting the award for “Event of the Year” for HERD at this year's Yorkshire Post Tourism Awards.
HERD was a genre-defying musical mash-up of epic proportions, devised by composer Orlando Gough and produced by Artichoke for Kirklees Year of Music 2023.
This vibrant, musical odyssey and large-scale participatory project traced the cultural and industrial story of Kirklees, through its many musical traditions and featured specially-crafted musical sheep sculptures wired for sound, broadcasting soundscapes across the region in the summer of 2023. It concluded with a free-to-attend grand finale event that was held in July at St George’s Square, Huddersfield.
