Halifax-born TV writer Sally Wainwright is the guest of Creative Calderdale next month.

She has created some of the best TV dramas including Last Tango in Halifax (which won her a BAFTA award), Unforgiven, and At Home With The Braithwaites.

Sally will be joined by Last Tango producer Karen Willis. The series was based on events in the life of Sally’s mother and is currently being screened in the US - opening up the beauty of Calderdale, where several scenes were filmed, to a wider audience.

The second series is currently being filmed.

Sally said: “The inspiration for Last Tango was deeply personal so I am delighted that it also resonated with so many viewers.

“The second series will bring even more dramatic twists, trials and tribulations for the characters.”

Tickets for the Creative Calderdale event are available via its eventbrite page.

It takes place on Thursday, October 24, at the Elsie Whiteley Innovation Centre.
