Coalville Market, sounds, lights and the Famous 50! Local people and businesses have come together to help us create this immersive experience. (In less than 10 days with very little budget!)
Starting with the mining heritage of (most) of the Famous 50, progressing into the trenches of WW1, with a chance to pop into the Thinking Booth to hear some of the poetry that has been written, leading into the main exhibition area you will have a chance to explore the Famous 50 in a unique way.
All you need to do to turn this idea into a reality is turn up..
We are looking for people that can help steward on the evening..
Please share and spread the word. There is only only chance as the exhibition closes on the Saturday after.
Watch this space for future plans..
People ask us, what is it you do? For ages we didn’t have the ‘elevator pitch’ rolling off our tongue…
We do now… ‘we are a creative community exhibition team that delivers a whole load of other things as well as really unique exhibitions’
If you want more information about our exhibitions or the other stuff we do, please get in touch!
Nanpantan Scouts in need of a hero or two!!
Please see this message – we saw it this morning and thought sharing could possibly help the Scout Hut weatherproof so they can use it over the winter!
I am hoping that somebody can help me. I am a local scout leader and have had some bad news. The roof on our scout hut has been leaking over the bad weather and has been inspected and have been told that the repair bill will be in excess of £15,000. We haven’t got that floating around, so we thought that as a temporary fix we could cover with lorry curtains over the winter until we look into fund raising. Does anybody know of anyone with any curtains we could use ( condition doesn’t matter that much as something is better than what we have at moment ). we are located in the Leicester area, my employer is part of Pallex so could arrange collection through them if further away.We think we might need 4 curtains in total but they might come from different people. We understand that we might need to purchase them but it is cheaper than £15,000. Here’s hoping for a good response.😊
1st Nanpantan Scouts
We welcomed over 100 young people to our event held at Coalville Market Hall, they came along to help us prioritise some local ideas for making Coalville a better place to live, work, learn and play in. This event followed on from the 1000 plus youth consultation survey that we had running in the weeks up to the event. Those young people that replied to the survey wanted to make a difference.
Deana and Julia have spent the last 4 days doing lots of thinking! We could possibly have the biggest ever collection of post it notes to prove it!
We have been on a Go MAD Thinking course with some amazing people from lots of different organisations and businesses, discovering and exploring a thinking framework, that allows people to make a difference!

The Hero Project CIC will soon have a series of specific thinking tools designed for work with children and young people, giving them the tools they need to make a difference at home, in school and life choices. Watch this space!
When you get the chance to let your hair down and have some fun, revisiting the night clubs of your youth! Could this be musical heritage in the making?
We loved our opportunity to make this film and meet the people who were enjoying themselves! check it out Passion -Coalville
