    Phoebe Throssel lives on Quality Street, the bustling hub of a quaint northern town where she runs a school for unruly children. Ten years since a tearful goodbye, an old flame returns from fighting Napoleon. But the look of disappointment on Captain Valentine’s face when he greets a more mature, less glamorous Phoebe, spurs our determined heroine to action. She becomes the wild and sparkling Miss Lily, a younger alter-ego who soon entraps the clueless Captain. As their romance is rekindled, can she juggle both personas? Or will her deception scandalise the town and wreck any future with the man she loves? J.M. Barrie’s delicious farce, written years before his now much-loved Peter Pan, was so well known in its day that it gave its name to the UK’s most popular chocolates, made in Halifax since 1936. In Laurie Sansom's directorial debut for Northern Broadsides, this rare revival also features a commentary from the Quality Street™ factory workers, whose own stories of hapless romance and growing old disgracefully give the show a playful Yorkshire twist. TICKETS: £20 ADULT, £18 CONCESSION, £15 PARTIALLY RESTRICTED GROUPS: BUY 11, GET 12TH TICKET FREE.

    Saturday 30th May 2pm at Brighouse Library

    Join Anne Lister scholar Jill Liddington as she introduces us to Anne Lister and her diaries.

    After her death in 1840, silence surrounded Anne Lister & her amazing diary. Outside local Antiquarians, few people knew much about her. Right up until 1984 when the Guardian published an article headed ‘The two million word enigma’. I’d recently moved to Halifax ~ and was soon hooked. Only to discover it wasn’t 2m words but 4 million!

    Anne Lister books followed. Yet it was only with Sally Wainwright’s 2019 drama series Gentleman Jack (BBC1/HBO) that Anne Lister won a global following. So what’s this triumph doing for Calderdale?

    Talk followed by Q&A

    (NB these dates are provisional at the moment but the Festival take place on the first weekend in September)

    The Sowerby Bridge Rushbearing Festival brings you a packed weekend of Rush-related tradition and tomfoolery!

    The Rushbearing Festival is the only one of its kind in Yorkshire. Over the course of the weekend, the festival sees the progress of the Rushbearing procession around seven towns and villages, visiting many churches and local hostelries along the way. the focal point of the procession is the sixteen feet high, two-wheeled handsomely decorated and thatched rushcart.

    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!

    For full route details for the Rushcart and approximate timings, please visit the Rushbearing website
