    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.

    Heptonstall Pace Egg Play is a traditional Mumming Play performed in Heptonstall’s Weavers Square on Good Fridays, attracting hundreds of visitors to the village. The Pace Egg play is not unique to Heptonstall but it is one of only a few still performed today. Good Friday, 11th April in Weavers Square . NB times are still TBC, but 2019's times were 11.15 am Heptonstall Pace Egg 12.30 pm Heptonstall Pace Egg 2.00 pm Heptonstall Pace Egg 3.00pm Midgley Pace Egg 4.00pm Heptonstall Pace Egg The Hillmillies will be dancing between the plays, The organisers reserve the right to change the times of, or cancel, any performances. In the play St George takes on contenders such as Bold Slasher, the Black Prince of Paradine and Hector. The costumes, in particular the strange headgear comprising a towering edifice garlanded with flowers, peculiar to the Calder Valley; are as much a part of the fun as the action. Violent sword fights predominate but, as ever, good triumphs over evil. Visitors are asked to not bring their cars into the village as parking is very limited. There are regular buses to Heptonstall from Hebden Bridge and visitors can walk up to Heptonstall via the Buttress, the steep cobbled pathway by Hebden Bridge Town Hall.
