    Showcasing Calderdale Museums’ fashion and textile collections from ancient Egypt to modern day. Calderdale Museums has one of the best but little known textile collections in the country. There are 17,000 objects, collected from all over the world. The collection began when the museum first opened in 1887. It represents the influence of world textiles on local production as well as how local textiles have been exported around and influenced the world. The collection includes significant objects from Ancient Egypt, The Balkans, China, Japan and the Indian Subcontinent. A range of English embroidery, samplers, costume, court dress, military uniforms, pattern books from West Yorkshire manufacturers and the design archive of Crossley’s Carpets. It represents not just textiles but textile production from spindles to spinning wheels, cards, combs and looms. The new fashion gallery will tell both the story of the production and manufacture of textiles in the local area and how those textiles were then used. This new gallery replaces the 'For King and Country' exhibition on the top floor at Bankfield. 2019 will also see a range of related talks, tours and events. FREE admission.

    September 2019 is the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of the Second World War. Calderdale was directly affected: men and women were conscripted for military and industrial service; industry was placed on a war footing and many workers took on Civil Defence and Home Guard duties. The area did not escape unscathed, there were 11 bombing incidents recorded and 11 people were killed. On 24 December 1944 a German V1 Flying Bomb (commonly known as ‘Doodlebugs’) landed in a field at Little Tooting Farm, Hubberton, Sowerby. Extensive blast damage made the farmhouse uninhabitable for some time and broke windows a mile away. The farmhouse occupants received cuts from broken glass. The photograph shows the Auxiliary Fire Service team, which attended the incident, along with the police and ambulance service. FREE admission. The exhibition runs from Saturday 8th June to Saturday 30th November 2019 .

    10am - 4pm (Closed Mondays) ‘CHORD’: A giant ‘time machine’ brings Dean Clough’s jute shed back to life. An enormous rope-making machine that ‘captures time’ will be a major visitor attraction in the forgotten ‘Jute Shed’ at Dean Clough Mills this Summer. Over the course of the exhibition two identical machines, each with three arms carrying 324 spools of coloured cord, slowly retreat from each other down a rail track. Suspended between them, nearly 3m in the air, a multicoloured rope is mesmerically woven. Unseen for ten years, ‘Chord’ was originally commissioned by Measure Arts and shown in a disused tram tunnel in London when the rush for tickets caused the booking systems to temporarily crash. Sections of the rope previously made by ‘Chord’ (measured - not in metres - but in minutes) will be on display at Halifax’s recently restored and nationally celebrated Piece Hall, which hosts a simultaneous exhibition of drawings and other pieces by the critically acclaimed Conrad Shawcross. NB. There is no parking near the Jute Shed and visitors should be prepared for a five minute walk. Please call in advance for details of wheelchair access. FREE entry The exhibiiton runs from 25th June to 21st July 2019.
