Buzzcocks, Graeme Park and Craig Charles added to Halifax's Piece Hall's festive line-up
Punk legends the Buzzcocks will be coming to Halifax this Christmas.
They will be joining house music luminary Graeme Park and upcoming talent Graft as part of a star-studded line-up of exciting gigs and events taking place at The Piece Hall.
They include shows by Ibiza legend Ellie Sax, Our House Family, The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club, Lottery Winners, The Landlubbers, Halifax Choral Society with the Black Dyke; and LoneLady.
The venue says there will be something for everyone and will be hosting its annual Christmas Eve Big Sing as well as a New Year’s Eve Comedy Club, a mini family rave with Boom Chikka Boom, and kids’ cinema sessions showing Christmas classics like Elf, Polar Express and Frozen.
The Spiegletent will be returning, along with a 30ft Christmas tree and traditional carousel.
Nicky Chance-Thompson, Chief Executive of The Piece Hall Trust, said: “We can’t wait to welcome visitors back to The Piece Hall for Christmas this year.
"The festive period is all about sharing experiences and enjoying time with loved ones, and we’ve worked hard to make sure that our line-up this year offers people of all ages and interests the opportunity to do just that.
“With performances from artists like Graft and Graeme Park to the Buzzcocks and Craig Charles, as well as Christmas films for the kids and a traditional sing-along before the big day, we’ve got plenty in store to bring some cheer to this extra special season.
“The last year and a half has been incredibly difficult, so we can’t wait to put a smile on people’s faces and welcome our wonderful visitors back this winter.”
