    2pm Anne Lister determined this would be a serious union, with Ann Walker moving into Shibden. Coal-mining and ‘Blue’ political door-stepping continued. The 1835 Halifax contest became known as ‘the window-breaking election’. Immediately, ‘mock marriage’ announcements appeared in Yorkshire newspapers. Then in 1836, lurid tales reached Shibden of Anne and Ann being burnt in effigy down in Halifax. Who was behind these public jibes - and why? Walk leader: Jill Liddington. 2-hour circular afternoon walk with short readings from Female Fortune, and ends with tea, cake and Q&A in Halifax. There are some steep steps, walking boots or shoes are advised. Meet at 2pm in the Piece Hall by the Book Corner.

    A team of young ladies take turns to ride on top of the cart as it is pulled by sixty local men dressed in Panama hats, white shirts, black trousers and clogs. Accompanying them are a group of supporters in Edwardian dress along with some of the region's finest musicians and Morris dancing teams to provide entertainment for the crowds.

    By the nature of this event timings over the weekend may vary slightly!

    7pm Join us as we welcome The Brighouse & Rastrick Band to the Victoria Theatre Halifax. 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
