Due to the complex nature of artist touring schedules, organisers have had to move some of the gigs including Nile Rodgers feat CHIC and The Doves to 2022.

Nicky Chance Thompson DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Trust, said: “We’re thrilled that we have been able to reschedule our planned Summer 2021 artists to the Autumn in what has been a turbulent year for all of us. By moving the events to the later dates, we hope we’re providing peace of mind for ticket holders not just around the certainty of the gigs going ahead, but around individuals’ safety and wellbeing – which remains our main priority.

“There is light at the end of the tunnel, and for the first time in a long while we can re-imagine a thriving and vibrant live music scene returning to Halifax once again. Live music events have always been the jewel in the crown of The Piece Hall, and we sincerely look forward to welcoming these world-renowned artists to our venue.”

All tickets already purchased for deferred events remain valid, and ticket holders do not need to do anything to secure their spot for the new date.

Customers who have faced issues with the scheduling, such as those ticket holders who cannot make the new dates, are advised to make contact through their booking platform to discuss making alternative arrangements. Refunds will be available from the point of purchase in the event that customers cannot make the new dates.

With visitor safety continuing to be the number one priority for The Piece Hall Trust, the team has been working closely with partners to determine the safest way to reinstate live music events.

Essential maintenance and a significant deep clean have been undertaken during the most recent lockdown, and the logistics of the large-scale events are being meticulously planned.
