    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.

    The Harrison Lord Gallery in Brighouse is opening a new show of paintings by Danny Abrahams on Saturday 18th May. Brighouse artist Danny Abrahams has established himself as one of the UK’s best-loved, most collectible artists and this is his first exhibition in his home town. Meet Danny in person at the opening between 1pm and 2pm. Danny's paintings are hugely popular so this is a great opportunity to see his latest work. Danny commented “Growing up in the eighties, I'm from a generation of kids that played out in the streets. It was a time of innocence, a carefree time filled with fun and adventure. So I use my imagination and fall into a world where summer holidays last forever and snowfalls are over the top of your wellies! Never stop dreaming!!” Art has now become the focal point of Danny's life. As a true Yorkshire man he is influenced by the local beauty of the northern landscape and has been inspired by his many travels around the region. Combining these images with memories of 'growing up' appeals to everyone with a soft spot for nostalgia. The magical sky is a powerful subject in his work. The overall beauty, emptiness, rawness and power of the everyday natural wonder that most of us take for granted, sets the backdrop for many of his romantic works. The exhibition is free to enter and runs for three weeks

    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 .

    7.30pm By Agatha Christie, directed by Steve Hirst Leonard Vole is in the dock for the murder of Emily French, a wealthy older woman. Unaware that he was a married man, Miss French had made him her principal heir, and apparently harboured hopes of marriage.

The play is adapted from a Christie short story, and was one of her personal favourites. Tickets £6 - £10
