Organisers of this year’s Piece Hall summer concerts say they are well on their way to a 200,000 ticket sell-out.

More than 170,000 tickets for the 34-show Live at The Piece Hall season have been sold so far.

A spokesperson for organisers The Piece Hall Trust and Cuffe and Taylor said the series of gigs “now attracts more people than most of the UK’s biggest music festivals”.

"Outside of events in London and the south coast, only Glastonbury and Liverpool’s Anfield stadium will welcome more gig goers to outdoor shows in England between June and August – confirming The Piece Hall as one of the nation’s leading live music venues,” said the spokesperson.

Nicky Chance-Thompson, CEO of The Piece Hall Charitable Trust, said: “I can't wait to welcome so many iconic artists to our unique heritage site for the first time and welcome back some performers who loved it so much the first time they simply had to come and play here again!

“It's wonderful to see Calderdale so full of life, energy and excitement during the gigs.

“People are rightly incredibly proud of The Piece Hall and its growing reputation as a premiere music and events venue, not just nationally but internationally.”
