    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 .

    Halifax artist David Smith opens his new exhibition at the Harrison Lord Gallery in Brighouse on Saturday 23rd November. David, a well-established local artist, has created a new style of work for the show. It is inspired by the great LS Lowry, famous for his stick men and mill scenes. David grew up living across the road from busy factories. "As a child I witnessed the ending of the industrial era. Before cameras were as common as they are nowadays, I chose to record my surroundings with paint. The paintings in this exhibition are my memories of that time.” However, they are not mere copies of Lowry’s work. Although inspired by the same subjects David has developed his own style. "Of course, L S Lowry casts his great shadow over everything northern and I think my work gives a very respectful nod to the work of that great man." David Smith will be in the gallery on Saturday November 23rd, 11.30am to 3pm so pop in and have a chat. The exhibition runs for two weeks at the Harrison Lord Gallery, 5 Bradford Rd, Brighouse and is free to enter.
