    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.

    Drawing Workshop with Jane Austin – Perspective of Arches All Souls Church, Haley Hill, Halifax, HX3 6DR. Saturday 20th July 2019. 11 – 1 PM. £15 Maximum 15 people per workshop. As the second in a series of three drawing workshops this year at All Souls Jane will help to simplify perspective, hopefully taking the stress out of a subject which many find daunting. Suitable for all abilities as the chosen images can be as simple or complicated as you wish. This building has limited access for the public, lacks any facilities such as running water and it can be very cold even on a hot day so it is essential to wrap up warm. You are welcome to use the facilities at Bankfield Museum which is a short stroll through the park. The floors are uneven, there is seating within the pews but you may also wish to stand with an easel provided or bring a small portable stool. You may wish to bring along your own sketchbook or paper and drawing materials, though some will be on hand as well as boards and easels. You may also wish to bring along a camera to capture more for work at home as there is so much to inspire. Contact Jane for booking and any enquiries, 01422 353308. Recent winning artist on BBC1 ‘Home Is Where The Art Is’ episode 12.

    Happy Valley Pride is an eclectic, alternative and inclusive week-long festival for everyone. Celebrating LGBT+ life in Hebden Bridge and surrounding areas and taking place in 2019 from the 22nd to 28th of July. This year will see Jonny Woo’s All Star Music Cabaret, Suzi Ruffell and the return of legendary club night, Duckie all heading to the Calder Valley in West Yorkshire for our week-long LGBT+ festival. Straight from being a smash success of Edinburgh Fringe 2018, Jonny Woo’s All Star Brexit Cabaret, will bring Jonny Woo and Richard Thomas’s ‘sequins and satire’ to Happy Valley Pride, in their uproarious, yet seriously glamorous satire about the referendum of 2016. Jonny Woo, the ‘king and queen’ of London’s alternative scene, and musical theatre’s ‘enfant terrible’ and creator of ‘Jerry Springer The Musical, Richard Thomas have created a brilliant score, full of unforgettable songs including ‘Referendum-dumb’, ‘Swivel Eyed Loon’ and ‘The Ballot Box Ballad’ Continuing the comedic theme, Suzi Ruffell makes a stop-off from her extensive UK tour and various tv and radio appearances to join the Happy Valley party. Regarded as one of best up and coming acts on the circuit Suzi’s innovative style captivates audiences with her engrossing 
tales of social ineptitude. Lauded as ‘a real stand up gem’ 
by The Guardian, this young independent woman celebrates her 
working class roots with a sideways look at the world. Once again, Happy Valley Pride have aimed to please with this exciting mix of of the uplifting and alternative and are promising even more to come with another crammed-campful of week-long entertainment.
