The Story of St Kentigern
St Herbert's CE Primary School and BlueJam Arts have worked with composer Jilly Jarman and film-maker Zoe Mackintosh to create a performance with film and live and recorded music inspired by the miracles of Kentigern. St Kentigern (the alternate name for St Mungo) stopped at Keswick and the Crosthwaite church and the school's badges are based on his symbols. His alleged miracles are remembered by the poem:
Here is the bird that never flew
Here is the tree that never grew
Here is the bell that never rang
Here is the fish that never swam
BlueJam Arts is a social enterprise running an inter-generational music and arts programme in Cumbria. They have been working with some of the children to produce film and music for us.
