    From Saturday 15th September 2018 you can enjoy an exhibition in Calderdale Industrial Museum celebrating the life and achievements of Laura Annie Willson. Laura Annie Willson was an extraordinary Halifax woman who rose from obscurity in the early twentieth century and then disappeared from view after her death in the 1940s. Before WW1 she became a prominent suffragette in Halifax, and was imprisoned twice. During the war, she was instrumental in getting women into factories to help the war effort. She set up one of the first works canteens in the engineering firm she ran with her husband [Willson Lathes], which became a model for others. Laura was awarded the MBE for her efforts. After the war Laura was a founder member of the Women’s Engineering Society, later its President, and later set up an electrical engineering company to get the new power source into more rural areas. If that was not enough, she decided something needed to be done about the poor housing stock available for working people, so she became a house builder. There are still four housing estates dotted across Halifax which Laura designed and built. You can visit Calderdale Industrial Museum each Saturday from 10am - 4pm, last entry 3.30pm. Entrance fee: £5 per adult. Concessions £4. Accompanied children enter free.

    27th October - 17th November The Harrison Lord Art Gallery in Brighouse is welcoming an exhibition of the latest works by the UK’s best-selling artist, Rozanne Bell. Rozanne's style is wonderfully uplifting, her paintings burst with colour, always vibrant and witty, convivial and quirky. Her many fans are eagerly awaiting her first visit to West Yorkshire for 18 months and to see this exhibition, which features over 50 new original works, all displaying her characteristically colourful and humorous style.

    Tue 13th - Sat 17th November 2018 7.30pm & 2.30pm Saturday Matinee Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grand mother’s failing health. After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together, only to find that this small French town isn’t big enough for the two of them. They agree on a settlement : the first one to extract $50,000 from a young female heiress, Christine Colgate wins, and the other must leave town. The battle of the cons is on, but who will reign victorious? We are transported to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Sophisticated, suave and a good dash of mischief, this hysterical musical features a delightfully jazzy score and was nominated for 11 Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score. All tickets £16.
