Performing music in a public space such as Higginbothams is significant as it sheds light on the venue which is of heritage value, emphasizing its potential and seeking out different ways of engaging with it and appreciating it. A concert in a public, informal space also makes music accessible and celebrates it, enabling the people to engage with both the music and the heritage building.
In addition, we had a short discussion about the ways in which people would like to better engage with the city's heritage. We received some intriguing and thoughtful suggestions. We are working towards incorporating them into our areas of work and improving upon them by collaborating with other organisations working in the same field.
