The people of Stockport are being asked to help bring alive the restoration of Bramall Hall.

Off the Wall is a new arts project that will work with the residents to animate the spectacular hall and gardens as part of the £1.6m refurbishment.

Co-ordinator Naomi Whitman said: “Communities will have the opportunity to showcase their creative ideas and connect to the recently restored site in new and meaningful ways.

“Encouraging residents to visit and participate in the life of the hall and garden for years to come.

“The project kicks off with some Sneaky Peek tours, and then workshops and interactive arts activities will run with various community groups from February to September 2016.

“Off the Wall will culminate in a sensational creative community takeover day in September 2016.”

Off the Wall is a partnership project between Stockport Council and Let’s Go.

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and Association of Greater Manchester Authorities (AGMA) the project forms part of a large £1.6 million restoration of the hall, managed by Stockport Council and funded by HLF.

Bramall Hall is due to re-open in the summer.
