Another big thank you to everybody involved in the #LKYPG and we will be back next year! Just you watch us!
This year, the LKYPG decided to do another showing of our community play, ‘Keep Calm And Carry On’. We decided that we were going to perform for four night this year… Three nights at the wonderful Salford Arts Theatre, and 1 night at the magnificent Lowry Theatre!
What follows is a selection of the pictures that were taken, during the rehearsal process, on the night of the big finale! We hope that you enjoy these, and we will be posting more soon!
Not too long ago, the LKYPG celebrated their 8 year anniversary, and while it is hardly a long time for a group to have been around, the amount of work that has been done in such a short amount of time is nothing short of astounding!
Following is a short video taken on the night, which might give you a little insight into how the group was formed, and just how important they are to the community of Lower Kersal, and indeed of Salford in general.
Just last week, the LKYPG have been up to major renovations, on the group’s allotments, and have recently completed a new fence and pond, that now feature prominently!
For a long time now, the allotments has served its purpose as a brilliant hub for all things green, in which kids can learn about planting, maintaining, and eventually cooking, their own fruits and vegetables.
However, we at the LKYPG are always looking to improve upon the aesthetics of the plot, and these new additions are wonderful!
Also, a few members of the group recently attended an allotments event, in which they promoted the plot, and Lesley even baked a wonderful looking carrot cake!
I hope you enjoy the pictures that follow, and we will be updating the site with more soon!
First meeting for a potential heritage project, in which we hope to produce a magazine about Lower Kersal! #funstuff http://t.co/rORJQXW7N8

What a great turnout last night! Everybody involved worked really hard, and it definitely showed! Congratulations to everybody!
The cast have been getting better and better as the nights go by, and are now ready to show the public their best! Can’t wait!
Three days in to the 2013 run of #keepcalmandcarryon we say goodbye to the fabulous Salford arts theatre, and hello to the Lowry theatre!
The #LKYPG off on the annual sponsored walk! The weather is a bit rubbish but what can you do eh? http://t.co/HibglwnRS8
Here at the LKYPG, we strive to be different… In fact every time we put a project out, we look to make it bigger, better, and just as brilliant as the ones we have put out previously.
Last year, with the help of playwright, Joe O’Byrne, Reel Manchester, and the wonderful volunteers from the group, we decided to take a step away from the usual films that we produce, and decided instead, to create a PLAY!
It wasn’t easy… In fact, it was good hard work, although we kept in high spirits throughout the entirety of the project! Weeks of research, rehearsing, and running around like madmen culminated in Keep Calm and Carry On, a play based in a community air raid shelter during the christmas bombing raids of world war 2 in Salford.
Throughout the entirety of this play, Stuart, accompanied by Michael Dunne & Chris Seddon, produced a short making of video, showcasing the journey of the group, as they went from rehearsals, to performing in front of hundreds, at the Lowry Theatre!
We hope you enjoy the behind the scenes, of Keep Calm and Carry On!
