This website was launched by the Saltaire Stories team at the Conversazione on 18th April 2015. That historic event (the first conversazione at Victoria Hall since 1964!) was co-ordinated by Saltaire Stories. 1105 people enjoyed a unique mixture of history, art, science, crafts, and entertainment. The conversazione tradition begun in 1878 was well and truly revived, whilst also updated to be more varied and inclusive. Over 100 volunteers took part, individually or in groups running stalls.
