    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.

    The Harrison Lord Gallery in Brighouse is opening a new show of paintings by Danny Abrahams on Saturday 18th May. Brighouse artist Danny Abrahams has established himself as one of the UK’s best-loved, most collectible artists and this is his first exhibition in his home town. Meet Danny in person at the opening between 1pm and 2pm. Danny's paintings are hugely popular so this is a great opportunity to see his latest work. Danny commented “Growing up in the eighties, I'm from a generation of kids that played out in the streets. It was a time of innocence, a carefree time filled with fun and adventure. So I use my imagination and fall into a world where summer holidays last forever and snowfalls are over the top of your wellies! Never stop dreaming!!” Art has now become the focal point of Danny's life. As a true Yorkshire man he is influenced by the local beauty of the northern landscape and has been inspired by his many travels around the region. Combining these images with memories of 'growing up' appeals to everyone with a soft spot for nostalgia. The magical sky is a powerful subject in his work. The overall beauty, emptiness, rawness and power of the everyday natural wonder that most of us take for granted, sets the backdrop for many of his romantic works. The exhibition is free to enter and runs for three weeks

    The Victoria Theatre, Halifax is excited to announce the launch of their very first Spring Into Comedy programme; a week of comedy events taking place in the theatre’s Green Room Bar from Saturday 18 May – Saturday 25 May. This jam packed week of laughs will give you the opportunity to see some great stand-up comedians up close in the laid back surroundings of the Green Room Bar and at an affordable price. The event opens on Saturday 18 May with the undisputed masters of off-the-cuff comedy The Noise Next Door. In this brand new show, audience suggestions will be transformed into ferociously funny scenes and songs in the blink of an eye. Tickets are available for just £15. On Sunday 19 May two live back to back stand-up shows will be taking place. Ivo Graham, the apologetic Eton and Oxford alumnus will be on stage at 8pm with his crafty and self-aware wit. Ivo will be followed by Tom Binns; AKA Ivan Brackenbury at 9:30pm. The daft and inept, yet adorable radio DJ will bring his fantastic ‘Hospital Roadshow’ spoof radio show, complete with inappropriate records and bungled cues - a unique and wonderfully brilliant show guaranteed to make you cry with laughter. The evening will be compered by hilarious comedian Andy Kind. Tickets are on sale for £11.75 per performance and combined tickets are available to see both shows for £18.50. John Robertson returns to Halifax on Thursday 23 May with his hilarious interactive video game event The Dark Room. This promises to be a comedy night unlike any other. Imagine being trapped in a retro videogame with a sadistic end-of-level boss in a high octane and text-based adventure game show. Described by the Daily Telegraph as “Watching audiences attempt to tackle the challenge and fail is one of the funniest sights around, don’t miss it”. Tickets are on sale for £13.75. Earth’s funniest footwear are back with their brand new show on Friday 24 May at 7pm when the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre return with a taster of their most recent Edinburgh Fringe creation. Following that you can also attend the infamous monthly Dick & Liddy’s Comedy Club at 9pm – a must stop on the comedy circuit to see up and coming comedians. Tickets are £11.75 per show and combined tickets are available to see both events for £18.50. The Spring Into Comedy week is brought to a close on Saturday 25 May with Saturday Night Comedy, featuring quality stand –up routines from Patrick Monahan, Bethany Black, Rob Rouse and compered by Cokey Falkow. Funny and adorable Irish/Iranian/Teessider comedian Patrick Monahan knows how to work a room and engage an audience with a strongly skilled blend of ad lib banter and stand up. Bethany Black’s style of comedy is honest, dark tinged but magical, filled with funny anecdotes about her life. You may recognise Rob Rouse from The Friday Night Project, Dave’s One Night Stand, Celebrity Juice and 8 out of 10 Cats. The evening will be. Tickets are just £15.75.
