More and more places over Yorkshire are ramping up their Christmas events, and Halifax’s Piece Hall has announced over 40 events that will take place in the historic building over the festive period, including a winter market and Santa experience.
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 30ft Christmas tree and a traditional carousel. The markets will be full of independent craft stalls, artisan makers and pop-up food and drink stalls over two weekends.
Children will get a chance to meet Father Christmas himself after enjoying a magical journey of storytelling and imagination in a unique Christmas experience that leads them through an enchanting interactive tour of The Piece Hall.
If that wasn’t enough there will be a range of Christmas performances and sing-along moments in the giant circus-style Spiegeltent will be returning where Ellie Sax will be among the performers as well as New Order’s drummer Stephen Morris, who will be in conversation with DJ Dave Haslam.
There will also be shows by Abba tribute band Abba Revival, jive and swing band King Pleasure and the Biscuit Boys, Jump, Jive and Wail and Elland Silver Band.
Nicky Chance-Thompson, Chief Executive at The Piece Hall Trust, said: “Christmas is back at The Piece Hall and we can’t wait.
“It’s such a special time and more so than ever this year. It’s a time to share with family and friends and remember those who are no longer with us.
“We want to get back to the true spirit of Christmas, so we’re celebrating kindness, caring, generosity and gratitude but we’ll also be in the party mood and up for some good old-fashioned fun.”
You can get tickets for the events from tomorrow at 10am on The Piece Hall website here.
