Julie Awarded Freedom of the Borough

Around 200 people gathered in The Coppice Theatre at Accrington and Rossendale College to celebrate Julie Hesmondhalgh receiving the highest award that can be bestowed by Hyndburn Council: Freedom of the Borough.
The audience included dignitaries, invited guests and members of the press. All were enthralled as members of the council proposed, seconded and confirmed the award by a show of hands. This was followed by a presentation of the framed certificate, a photo shoot and finally Julie herself delivered a very well-received acceptance speech.

In the second part of the evening, local schools gave performances ranging from Dramatic sketches to acrobatics and a little musical theatre in the mix.
