Halifax Antiquarian Society Lecture – The History of Calderdale’s Markets

Price: £Free – 3

Event description


The history of Calderdale’s markets and the positive effect they have on our towns– Lecture by John Walker, Markets Manager, Calderdale Council

In any language, the Market Place conjures up a picture of people, merchandise, movement, vibrancy, history, culture and a multitude of other adjectives. Throughout the centuries local townsfolk have gathered to buy and sell their wares, from established marketplaces. Many of our historic customs were given over to market day where people thronged to this great gathering. Calderdale’s   Markets   span   those   very    same centuries. From Royal Charters through Gibbet Law

Meetings are held in the Halifax Room, Calderdale Industrial Museum, Square Road, Halifax HX1 1Q
