CARTOON ME!
As part of the special commemorations for the 500th anniversary of Bernard Gilpin’s birth and the 50th anniversary of the Houghton Feast Revival, a special comic book is being commissioned to tell the story of Gilpin’s involvement in the historic Houghton Feast!

To help fund the project, a limited number of people are being given the rare chance to appear as “extras” in the comic!

If you’d like to see yourself immortalised as a cartoon character as well as helping to share the story of Houghton’s famous Rector, now is your chance!

Houghton Heritage Society is seeking donors to help kickstart the project and those who support the campaign can see themselves "cartoonised". For further information, please email: info@houghtonlespring.org.uk

Sunderland Street, around 1899. Now a distance memory - or perhaps not even known about - to the thousands of motorists who whizz up and down the A690 dual-carriageway!
