Halifax is happening again! Whatever you do this summer, don’t make the mistake of thinking there’s nothing going on. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes and collaborating with some of your favourite events and venues, which means you’ll be well entertained right through summer. Events have been carefully planned for COVID safety too, so you can relax and join the fun without having to worry.
There’s plenty for kids as well as grown-ups in Halifax, so it’s brilliant for a family day out. A visit to the National Children’s Museum at Eureka! makes the perfect start. Here you’ll find six themed zones full of play and learning, plus outdoor space, a special creativity zone, and even a café and shop. Best of all, you only pay once for a full year’s entry, so it’s a bargain too! Halifax YMCA is another must-do, with indoor skating, a pantomime society and parent and toddler groups, all inside the beautiful Marlborough Hall, a grade II listed building (yes, yet another one!). Head to the Electric Bowl if galactic golf and ten pin bowls is more your thing, or to our fantastic Vue Cinema for the latest big screen blockbusters. For outdoor action why not try the walking trails and wonderful miniature railway at Shibden Hall.
