Dudley Days

A new arts project exploring Dudley’s past, present and future.

Dudley Days – with John Edgar (Storyteller) and Dan Whitehouse (Musician).

A new arts project exploring Dudley’s past, present and future.

Participants across generations are invited to share stories, memories, and dreams for the future of Dudley – crystallising them in song, and documenting the creative process on film.

The Dudley Days project begins with three creative workshops in the heart of the borough where participants will write and record three new original songs inspired by Dudley landmarks and their own experiences of living in the town. An exciting opportunity to discover more about Dudley’s rich heritage and improve well-being through creativity and songwriting.

Day 1

We enjoyed a walk around Dudley town centre, taking in the fountain where the words of John Edgar are engraved. John then told stories and lead a writing workshop that inspired two new original songs.
