Halifax Town Hall

Calderdale Council would like your help in documenting the history of the Town Hall through your artefacts such as documents, invitations, brochures, photographs and anything associated with the design and development of the Town Hall and its official opening ceremony on August 4, 1863.

Residents are invited to get in touch if they have artefacts to lend to add to the exhibition and anniversary on August 4.

Events will be taking place throughout August.

Mayor of Calderdale coun Ann Martin (Lab, Brighouse) said: “Halifax Town Hall has an amazing history that many people in Calderdale may not be aware of.

“This exhibition will provide a fascinating insight into the history of the opening of the iconic town centre building.

“I encourage anyone who has interesting memorabilia to get in touch and share their piece of history with the rest of Calderdale.”

If anyone has items they would like to contribute to the exhibition contact Karen Burton on 01422 393021.
