Mikron Theatre lottery boost

Mikron Theatre will get £4,000 towards the writing of a new show about the Luddites for 2012 thanks the the success of the The Lawrence Batley Theatre's  bid of  £55,197 to the Jubilee People's  Millions for its Cloth, Culture and Communities project.  
The Project which will involve dozens of artists and communities from the Huddersfield, Dewsbury and the surrounding villages is a celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Luddite uprisings in West Yorkshire  when skilled workers smashed factory machines in resistance to the Industrial Revolution.
