The programme will recreate and document the innumerable legendary happenings that have taken place in this unique community village hub since its redevelopment seven-years ago - from the inimitable activities of the Institute's Youth Club (The New Mechanics), to village fancy-dress parties.

The full day's programme will include: 1001 Village Nights exhibition chronicling Grizedale Arts seven-year relationship with the village of Coniston; a special combined Honest Shop where you will be able to purchase village classics alongside various art multiples produced by some of Grizedale Arts artist alumni; a special Coniston Institute Reading Room Talks Programme; the Grizedale Arts Office Archive chronicling 40 years of Grizedale Arts (nee Society); a number of one-off special reference displays highlighting some of the more convoluted historic and contemporary mores of the area in the Coniston Institute Library; Laure Prouvost's Grandma's Art School hosted by Jocelyn McGregor in the Ruskin Museum meadow; and much more.

Timings and further details on all of the above events and activities are available in the full programme. Download your copy from Grizedale Arts' website:
