CultureDale launch event

On Saturday 13 April, The Piece Hall is hosting some of the 26 free events, activities and performances to mark the start of Calderdale’s Year of Culture 2024.

Across the town, from 10am to 8pm, there will be a non-stop showcase of culture, creativity and talent at various locations – from music and dancing, to art and workshops for everyone to enjoy.

The Piece Hall programme will kick off with ballroom dancing in the courtyard, and also includes uplifting performances from The Signing Choir, folk singer-songwriter Roger Davies and his band and Mr Wilson’s Second Liners.

Dean Clough will celebrate local heritage with a Crossley Carpet sculpture workshop, and will get people active with a climbing wall.

A range of local artists will fill the Borough Market’s Albany Arcade with music and performances, and the town centre streets will come alive with a makers’ market, music, skateboarding, an art workshop and much more.

The Year of Culture (CultureDale) is a 12-month celebration of Calderdale turning 50 on 1 April 2024 – a landmark moment in the borough’s story – and marks the ultimate year for the Vision 2024 for Calderdale.
