    Sculptor David Murphy has been selected from over 40 submissions to create a bold and confident response to the Piece Hall's history as a global centre for textiles. Commissioned in partnership with Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) and co-funded by the Arts Council National Lottery Project Grant programme, ‘The Blanket’ is a large-scale floor-based sculpture, positioned at the heart of the 66,000sq ft piazza. Steel tubes create a magnified weave, a shallow grid of intercepting and merging lines of subtly curved metal that together create a large ‘picnic blanket’. Accompanying the installation in the courtyard will be a gallery exhibition displaying further works from the artist, including paintings, drawings, sculptures and maquettes, alongside working drawings and sketches relating to the commission. A programme of workshops for schools, adult learning events and community projects will take place throughout the time of the installation, acting as a warm up to ‘Yorkshire Sculpture International’, the UK’s largest sculpture festival – presented by the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds Art Gallery, The Hepworth Wakefield and YSP – which takes place across the region from 22 June until 29 September 2019.

    Monday 4th March - Friday 29th March. Core opening times Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm. The exhibition will show how important the station is to Hebden Bridge and how it has become linked to the fortune and prosperity of the town. The railway and station opened in October 1840. Provision for passengers was limited and goods were the initial focus. With time, and criticism from travellers, the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company developed a second platform and a waiting room on westbound side of the track. The station employed many dozens of workers, from Station Master to delivery men. It was the main point from which local businesses transported their goods and supplies. The parcels office was vital to the town. For example, the picture house had films changed twice weekly, delivered by the railway van and the manager came to pay his bill each week, bringing a couple of free tickets for the staff. The station was the place from where local people went on holiday or sometimes to war, and the place at which thousands of visitors arrived in the town. Hebden Bridge almost lost the station in the 1970s and 1980s but it has been regenerated and almost 800,000 passengers arrived or left through its doors in 2017-18.

    7:00pm at Red Brick Auditorium Tickets: £12 (£10 concessions) , approx running time: 120mins Age: 5+ Malcolm doesn’t like animals, which is a problem because his family love them, in fact, they’re wild about them. Their house is full of pets of all shapes and sizes, but what it’s NOT full of is stuff Malcolm likes. Such as the laptop he wanted for his birthday. The only bright spot on the horizon is the Year Six school trip, which Malcolm never thought his parents would pay for. And yet there he is, on the bus, heading to……a farm. What follows is a school trip like no other, where Malcolm begins to understand animals more deeply than anyone. But will he end up the same as before? Because sometimes the hardest thing to become is yourself. A vibrant, energetic and gloriously funny musical from the award-winning Story Pocket Theatre. ANiMALCOLM combines physical theatre, puppetry and the company’s outstanding storytelling style to bring David Baddiel’s magical and wonderfully comic story to the stage.
