The Piece Hall confirmed as new venue for Overgate Light up a Life memorial service

Overgate Hospice invites the Calderdale community to join at The Piece Hall on Wednesday, 5 December at 6.30pm to come together and remember those who have added light to their life.

Christmas is a very emotive and difficult time of year for many and Light up a Life offers the opportunity to come together, remember loved ones and celebrate their amazing lives during a moving service.

Visitors will be welcomed by Overgate Chaplain Tina Turner outside in the main courtyard of the Piece Hall to sing carols, hear readings from Overgate’s Trustees and volunteers, and light candles in remembrance.

The service will also be accompanied by The Overgate Choir and The Halifax Concert Band.

Tribute Fundraiser Claire Howard said: "Light up a Life services are always such beautiful events; very emotional but comforting. We are very grateful that The Piece Hall have welcomed us to host a service this year and we hope that you can all join us at this stunning and iconic venue."
