Love Letters To The Town (2020) Film Premiere - Online, Monday 14th September 2020 at 6.00pm

Love Letters To The Town was a special project, by and with a group of local young writers who had something hopeful to share with the people of Ellesmere Port and the world during lockdown.

The online writing sessions ran between May and August 2020 - our film documents just some of the brilliant writing and how we helped share these messages of hope.

"Hello. We're old friends you and I. I've lived my whole life here. We've been side by side. You've been here for longer than I can ever imagine..."

You can follow #LoveLettersToTheTown across social media or find out how the project evolved here. What would you write to your town?
