Do I have to be in the film?2021-05-07T17:58:42+01:00

We would like as many people as possible to be in the film, but if that’s not your cup of tea don’t worry. We would still love for you to participate in the workshops and creativity in the preparation weeks before filming starts. You may wish to take part at home and share your content on social media using the hashtag #maccassemble

We are also more than happy to film objects, artworks and materials for your scene too, just remember to bring your storyboard with your idea!

Can I take part on my own?2021-05-07T17:58:19+01:00

Of course, you can come on your own, as a group, business, school or family! Just make sure you bring your storyboard, materials you need to film your scene and proof of booking. Be the star of the show!

Can I just show up and take part?2021-05-07T17:57:55+01:00

No, because of the COVID regulations you must have signed up for a filming slot. Full information about different slots is available at Macclesfield Barnaby Festival. This is so we can adequately space each participant in line with government regulation and give everyone enough time to film their scene properly. If you show up on the day without a booking you will not be able to film your scene, so make sure you book in advance!

Will there be a parade this year?2021-05-07T17:57:22+01:00

Not a parade as you know it! As 2021 is not a traditional Barnaby Festival year, the team are bringing you something different – the Macc Assemble Showreel Parade. Macc Assemble is part of Barnaby Bright 2021, a collection of Macclesfield midsummer events brought to you by the team behind Barnaby.

As we won’t be doing any traditional parading, we are instead making a film where everyone has a starring role! Between Friday 28 – Monday 31 May, we are inviting pre-booked groups of participants to come to various locations across Macclesfield with a storyboard of ideas, to work with our film crew to show off a talent or creative idea and form a 20 second scene. Each 20 second scene will then be assembled together to make our collective masterpiece, a showreel film which will be shown live on Saturday 19th June at midday.

Macc Assemble would not be possible without Macclesfield's amazing creators and makers. Please consider making a donation upon booking to allow inclusive, accessible art-making in Macclesfield to continue.
