20 May Heritage Festival returns this September!
Something we’re really looking forward to returning to Halifax is the Heritage Festival in September. We were very lucky last year and still managed to deliver a few Heritage activities but we’re hoping to be able to see a lot of the events returning for this September. Stay tuned for all the updates.
It’s no surprise heritage is so big in a town built on history. Highlights include the 900 year-old Minster; a striking community space hosting music recitals and daily services. Displaying rare machines and artifacts like lathes and looms, the Industrial Museum is another must. Our breathtaking Town Hall is Grade II listed and topped by a magnificent 180ft spire, with design and interiors by Charles Barry and statues by John Thomas. Don’t miss Dean Clough, once the world’s largest carpet factory and now a vast and impressive home to various eateries, galleries and businesses. The Bankfield Museum is popular too: a wonderful Grade II listed historic house with a textiles gallery, regimental museum and gorgeous interior decor. Even our fabulous Borough Market is a Victorian treasure, and a stunning venue for a host of great stalls.
