    Discover ‘Gentleman Jack’ Overnight break at Holdsworth House with two tickets to Shibden Hall A new BBC/HBO drama written by Sally Wainwright (Last Tango in Halifax, Happy Valley, Scott & Bailey), entitled ‘Gentleman Jack’, pauses for filming at Shibden Hall in Halifax this summer. Visit the historic hall, the former home of diarist Anne Lister, on a short break at Holdsworth House from 24 July – 2 September 2018. Anne Lister (1791-1840) was a landowner, traveller, industrialist and student, and some say a social climber. Lister has become posthumously famous for her diaries, which ran to more than 6600 pages and detailed almost every moment of her life. Already one of Halifax’s most notable residents, Lister is set to become famous worldwide thanks to a new drama highlighting Lister’s love interest in long term partner, Ann Walker. Parts of the series, starring Suranne Jones as Anne Lister, are being filmed this May and June at Shibden Hall where Lister lived with her family. The Hall then re-opens to the public for the summer before closing on September 3rd for more filming. Visitors can wander around the house and its gardens, courtyard and see Lister’s stagecoach in the barn. If you’ve read The Secret Diaries of Anne Lister you’ll recognise many of the elements and places around Shibden Hall. Shibden Hall makes a wonderful trip out, as it is set in an expansive parkland with woodland, miniature railway, boating lake, delightful cafe and walkways.

    The Harrison Lord Gallery in Brighouse is opening its Summer Art Exhibition on Saturday 11th August. The exhibition features work by artists Mark Sofilas from Leeds and Michael Abrams from Wakefield. Both painters excel at landscape painting. With their innovative and unique styles, they have provided the Gallery with a wonderfully uplifting body of work featuring landscape and seascape scenes. Mark Sofilas’s paintings are very heavily guided by the emotions of particular scenes which Mark then tries to convey to the viewer. “It might be something as simple as smoke drifting from a chimney pot or silhouette created by a particular light source. It may be the strength or history, which emanates from an everyday object or piece of architecture.” commented Mark. Mark often exaggerates colour and perspectives to arrive at a nicely balanced place, where the image created has not only captured the physical qualities of the scene, but more importantly, the feeling of the occasion. Michael Abrams found inspiration for his new body of work by tapping into his Yorkshire roots. “I don’t necessarily have to observe things in the traditional sense, I just let my mind take a walk and see where it takes me.” His new painting depict a Yorkshire character with his dog walking in the Pennines. Michael has found this a very rewarding subject and he has been absorbed for many weeks in developing these characters. He has been inspired by the work of artists as diverse as David Hockney, Beatrix Potter and Picasso and in the cartoon styles of Ralph Steadman and Terry Gilliam. He starts with a very simple sketch trying to get a pleasing composition and then works quickly with a limited pallet to ‘feel’ his way around the canvas until he is happy with the colour harmony and brush strokes. He often applies paint with rags and uses his fingers to manipulate the paint and give energy to the line work. In addition to the two lead artists there is work from 8 other artists on show. The mixed show features over 40 new paintings that capture the essence of the British countryside in a unique and original fashion. Other artists featured in this exhibition are: Roger Davies, Sheryl Roberts, John Sibson, Francesca Roberts, Clare Haley and Rozanne Bell. The art on show has a focus on accessible, colourful and uplifting works that appeal to everyone not just the art connoisseur. Steven Lord, gallery owner said “Mark and Michael are two local artists at the top of their game and encourage everybody to come and see this inspiring exhibition.” The Harrison Lord Art Gallery in Brighouse is open every day except Sunday and the free to enter exhibition runs until September 5th. The exhibition is free to enter.

    Friday 31st August - Monday 3rd September The Norland Scarecrow Festival has been held every year since 2000 and raises money for the village and local charities. Local home and business owners create scarecrows to match a different theme each year, creating a trail of around 80 scarecrows! This year the committee have decided to shake things up a bit and chosen a theme of scarecrows beginning with the letter N. The aim is get the scarecrow makers` creative juices flowing and should result in a wider variety of new scarecrows that appeal to all ages alongside some of those well loved regulars that you will have seen on previous years; Nemo, Noddy. With more variety of Scarecrows the visitors may end up scratching their heads to put names to the scarecrows, so thinking caps on folks! The festival is the first full weekend in September as usual, which means this year it starts on Friday 31st August just before the kids go back to school. The perfect end to the school holidays. The marquee on the Council field will be open from 9am to 7pm (circumstances permitting). Also this year the committee have teamed up with the fabulous facebook group #calderdalerocks and the students at Norland junior and infant school have drawn some amazing pictures on the rocks ready for their ‘rock drop’ so keep an eye out for them around the area! HAVE YOU FOUND A GOLDEN ROCK? As a twist there will be 5 special golden #norlandscarecrows #calderdalerocks being dropped at the start of july. If you are lucky enough to find one of these and bring it to the scarecrow marquee over the weekend you can trade it in for a scarecrow themed prize!
