HERD wins Event of the Year at the Yorkshire Post Tourism Awards 2023!


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.
