    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 .

    8th - 29th September 2019 (Preview is Sunday 8th of September 2pm- 4pm) You are all invited to Coastal Connections - A mixed media Exhibition showcasing the work of Jude Howe and Stan Pile. Costal Connections Exhibition at The David Wright Gallery is about the East Yorkshire Coastline, Stan Pile has created a stunning body of work, his paintings show ‘views From The Prom' are observations of the same view from a beach hut on Hornsea promenade, from September to February. The ever changing light, tides and weather conditions produce very different results. The shoreline changes dramatically during different moon phases and huge amounts of sand and pebbles can appear then disappear. The sea can be as smooth as silk or churning madly, creating gigantic waves which over top the front.’ Jude Howe says ‘We love the East Yorkshire coast; the colours, the quality of light, the panoramic skies and seascapes, the constantly changing weather patterns. The surrounding natural environment, the cliff top flora along with the fascinating shoreline organisms, provide a wealth of inspiration at both macro and micro levels. Sculptural form is at the heart of much of our practice, incorporating experimentation with materials and processes and stretching traditional limitations. Glass, ceramic and steel have a range of tactile properties and all are changed with heat. Glass and steel may be sharp and dangerous - both can be worked to produce smooth, delicate objects of beauty. Our coastal connections are life enhancing and an ongoing inspiration for our practices.’Jude Howe Costal Connections runs till Sunday 29th of September at The David Wright Gallery, Artsmill, Linden Road, Hebden Bridge.
