Cumbria Crack

Calling all Goths, Punks, Metalhead and Moshers

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs at The Brickyard in November 2019

Did you have a pint with Jimmy Hendrix in the Albion? Did you lose your hearing when Motörhead played in the Market Hall? Were you at the Big Weekend when the Foo Fighters got escorted off stage?

Festival of Hope: Live & Loud is a National Lottery Heritage funded social history project created for the Carlisle Festival of Hope, in collaboration with Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery.

The concept of the Live and Loud project came from Metal enthusiast, Ali (24).

After growing up listening to stories of her family friends having 30 Goths sleep on their floor when the Mission visited, to her first boss boasting of hanging out his bedroom in Wetheral and STILL being able to hear every word of “Ace of Spades” blasting from the Market Hall – she was shocked at the lack of archived material and recordings.

The aim of this project is to document and capture the rich – but often forgotten heritage of Carlisle’s Rock, Punk, and Metal scenes, and to showcase the talent of up and coming bands in the area.

There is a week left for sharing your photos, footage, and memories (from 1960 until now!) you can join the Live and Loud Facebook group or email [email protected].
