    Thursday 26th – 28th September 2019

    After four years in Hebden Bridge, the Calderdale Beer and Cider Festival returns to Halifax this year and has become bigger and better than ever. The new venue, The Viaduct Theatre, Dean Clough, Halifax, is a much larger venue and offers seating in the old and unusual Viaduct Theatre itself, a more modern adjoining room and the Viaduct Courtyard.

    There will be in excess of 50 beers on offer with most coming from breweries in Yorkshire and Lancashire, but some will come from much further afield. One section of the bar will be completely devoted to wooden cask beers with 12 larger 9 to 11 gallon casks and an additional 5-6 smaller wooden casks containing higher ABV ales. These beers will be casked by experts, will include some incredibly rare ales and some beers have been commissioned by the Calderdale Beer and Cider Festival Organising Team.

    In addition, there will be another bar of 38 beers in normal casks including ales from new breweries, old classics and at least one cask from every Halifax and Calderdale registered brewery. Beers will be available in a wide range of styles; gluten free, vegan and vegetarian beers will be available and all beers will be ordered from breweries only. There will be no agency ales at this festival.

    This year there will also be more ciders and perries on offer on our Cider Bar, with some being ordered from local producers as well as those ordered from more traditional cider and perry producing areas of the UK. Beers, ciders and perries will be priced in line with prices in local pubs and bars and payment will be via tokens which can be only purchased in the venue. These tokens are fully refundable if they are not spent. As well as beer, cider and perry, customers will also be able to purchase gin and a range of other alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks from the Viaduct Bars.

    This year, by popular demand, we invite back Foras Bars Limited from Todmorden who will provide a range of wholesome meals at affordable prices and these will be available until 9pm every evening. There will also be the opportunity to purchase snack type foods, such as crisps, nuts etcetera, from a locally-based trader. Purchases from the Viaduct Bars and all food items will be payable by cash. The Viaduct Bars will also accept card payments.

    Last year saw the introduction of Talks and Tastings which proved extremely popular and these have been extended this year. Tutored Beer Tasting will be led by Richard Lee, a qualified tasting panel trainer and a member of the Champion Beer of Britain Tasting Panel, whilst Tutored Cider and Perry Tasting will be led by the well-known local figure of Ian Priddey, a cider and perry producer, hop grower and home brewer.

    The interactive talks will be delivered by the ever popular Kirsty Walker, writer of the increasingly influential blog ‘Lady Sinks The Booze’ and successful speaker at the Manchester Beer and Cider Festival in January and Chris Dyson whose blog ‘Real Ale, Real Music’ is an appreciation of both, and is a regular attendee at both local & national music venues watching up and coming bands as well as established ones. Chris has an excellent knowledge of local pubs and real ale.

    Entry to the Talks and Tastings is completely free, but advance tickets must be obtained via the Halifax and Calderdale CAMRA website. 

    Should you be interested in finding out more about sponsorship opportunities at the festival, information can be found here. 

    The Beer, Cider and Perry lists will be posted on our website approximately two weeks before the festival.

    Fri 27 Sep, 8pm at Copper Auditorium Tickets: £12 (£10 concessions) , approx running time: 80 mins. Age: 14+ A new show from the multi Fringe First winning team that created Confirmation: written and performed by Chris Thorpe (Unlimited Theatre, Third Angel) developed with and directed by Rachel Chavkin (The TEAM). Commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre, Warwick Arts Centre and Les Théâtre de la Ville de Luxembourg and supported by the British Council, Goethe-Institut London and the Collaborative Touring Network. We all have a nationality. Or almost all of us. Status is a show about someone who doesn’t want his any more. About running away from the national story you’re given. About who is responsible for that story and what might happen to it if you give it up. A globe-spanning journey of attempted escape, with songs along the way. Status springs from conversations about who we might be, and whether your country needs you more than you might need it.

    Fired Earth: Decline of the Industry 1935-2019 Chris Bateman, member The final part of the story covers the decline of the industry from the inter-war period through the steady decline of the immediate post-war period to the decimation of the 1960s and 70s as steel making went over to the BOS process; gas works closed as natural gas took over; the clean air acts eliminated coal for heating; and concrete and plastic became dominant in building. So from 35 works only 2 remain Unless otherwise stated meetings are held in The Caygill Rooms at The Piece Hall, Halifax (at South East of The Piece Hall, accessed via steps or lift to Second Floor) beginning at 7.30pm. Visitors are welcome; a contribution to Society funds would be much appreciated.
