This is the flyer for our upcoming fundraiser, on the 8th of July at St. Margaret´s Church in Whalley Range (M16 8AE).

We are going to have some exciting performances from:

Paddy Steer – Music to video    and

The Open Eye Ensemble  (who will provide a soundtrack to the film “Saturnus” by Ludo Mich):

Simon Connor and Chris Briden (subtly looping guitar parts and pure, reedy vocal lines into a tapestry of pealing melody):

We will also be showing some of our recent work in between the bands. We are hoping to raise a bit of money towards a camera which we would like to buy for the collective.
Food and booze will be on site.

If you can’t make it on the night but still want to support us, why not donate here:

And here is how you find us on the night:


In May we went up North, following an invitation from a group of postgraduate students from the University of Glasgow, to hold an interdisciplinary workshop about film as research tool.

For us this meant having the possibility to not only share what we had been working on so far as the Castles Built in Sand Collective, but also to hear how others used or might use different media in order to follow up their research topic. More than 30 people attended the workshop and we hope we were able to inspire them as much as we were inspired by them.
