More and more places over Yorkshire are ramping up their Christmas events, and Halifax’s Piece Hall has announced a full month of fantastic festive events that will take place in the historic building over the Christmas period, including a Spandau Ballet star Martin Kemp a ‘family rave’ and an ice rink.
You can expect to be put in a festive spirit throughout the 66,000 sq ft of Piece Hall with a winter wonderland complete with a spectacular tree bigger than the 30ft spectacular that was featured last year. The markets will be back full of independent craft stalls, artisan makers and pop-up food and drink stalls over two weekends.
But the big news is the Spandau Balley star and former Eastender actor, Martin Kemp who will be kicking things off with a huge show playing hits from the 1980s on December 1st at the historic hall’s Spiegeltent, which returns for the Piece Hall’s 2022 Christmas programme.
Along with Kemp, the popular festive tent will host Hacienda DJ Graeme Park, and Spooney from Radio 2 along with live bands, brass bands, choirs and even stand-up comedians. There will also be fantastic club nights, Christmas film screenings, and even a mini-rave for kids.
The fun kicks off on November 11th and crescendos on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day party hosted by Halifax house and classics DJ Dale Castell.
Piece Hall CEO Nicky Chance-Thompson said: “We really want to share the magic this Christmas. The festive season is all about family, friends and coming together to make memories, and we’ve worked really hard to make sure our winter programme has something for everyone.
“There will be a full month of top-class shows in the Spiegeltent and an ice rink in the courtyard for the first time since the refurbishment. What’s more, our fabulous markets are back and we’re bringing in our biggest tree yet.
“So whether you’re partying, shopping independently for gifts or just want to experience a great festive day out, The Piece Hall will definitely get you in the Christmas spirit.”
