One More Tale…

‘In Motion’, the Keighley Transport Festival, is happening across the town on Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd June 2022. It is free entry to all the participating sites and events run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The History Society is mounting an exhibition featuring “Ten Tales of Transport”. One of the stories we are telling is “Keighley’s Own Aire-Force” which tells the tale of how the town rallied round to fund two fighter planes in the early days of World War Two, told with the help of Ian Walkden from the Men of Worth Project. You can see the exhibition upstairs at the Civic Centre on both days.
