Calderdale's huge summer of music kicks off this weekend

The summer of music gigs off this weekend with Jessie Ware on June 19.

Earlier this year the Brit Award-nominated singer-songwriter said she was looking forward to performing in Halifax.

She said: “I’ve had a good look at The Piece Hall online, and it’s like a lovely, grand stately home – which is very me.

“I’m going to be playing a lot of tents and academies this summer, so somewhere like this really stands out. It feels grand and sophisticated, and I can pretend I’m in Downton Abbey or something like that.

“It’s really exciting and I just hope it doesn’t rain too much!”
