Why not try the new Dean Clough family trail? This free trail takes approximately 1 hour to complete and the clues lead you across the Dean Clough site (both inside and out). On your travels you will get to see the huge Dean Clough Lego model and you'll be tested to see if you can walk along the old railway tracks, amongst many things.
There are also cafes, bars and restaurants at Dean Clough so you can combine doing the trail with having a bite to eat or something to drink.
Check out our website www.deanclough.com for opening times and what else there is to see and do at Dean Clough. The trail leaflets are available from Main Reception in D Mill.

Just back from its European tour, the extreme FMX team will be bringing you its jaw-dropping stunts to the Big Top as our pilots fly through the air displaying cliff-hangers, nac nacs and supermans to name a few. Battling for air space, our resident riders are sure to get the adrenaline pumping as they defy gravity with incredible mid-air backflips.

Based on Carlo Goldoni’s comedy ‘The Servant of Two Masters’ writer Richard Bean’s play is a delight. Slapstick, silliness, song and satire all come together to create this glorious celebration of British comedy.
It is 1963 and fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6000 from his fiancée’s dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers. Holed up at the Cricketers’ Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple?

The Brighouse & Rastrick Band is regarded by many as the best and most consistent ‘public subscription band’ in the world. In its time the majority of premier band championships have been held by ‘Briggus’, most recently becoming National Champion Band of Great Britain in 2017, whilst the band has also attracted a formidable reputation for highly entertaining concerts for both the general public and brass band connoisseur. The band was formed over 130 years ago through public donations given by the townsfolk of the adjacent villages of Brighouse and Rastrick that face each other across the River Calder in West Yorkshire. Today, it still continues to be supported through public subscriptions and its own fundraising efforts. Tickets from £15.75
