It’s a hot ticket!

As the Brighouse Festival quickly approaches for its third year, organisers are seeing a surge in ticket sales. Prepare yourselves for a week of entertainment and activities opening on Monday, September 15, at The Smith Art Gallery by Calderdale Mayor Pat Allen at 4.30pm. The event is open to sponsors, performers and organisers followed by a performance from the Well and Highly Strung Quartet in the evening at 7.15pm. The quartet will play a selection of popular string quartets.

There’s a high demand for the Brighouse and Rastrick Brass Band concert on Thursday, September 18, at Central Methodist Church, The Johnnie Casson Show on Friday, September 19, and Mikron Theatre production of ‘Troupers’ at the Civic Hall on Saturday, September 20. It is advised to book soon if you want to be sure of a seat.

The week offers a popular concert by local soprano Jenny Stafford with Alistair Ollerenshaw and the Wilkinson/Jackson Jazz ensemble playing at the Smith Art Gallery.

On the Saturday there is a selection of hands on activities with ROKT offering an action packed day of abseiling, canoeing, slack-lining and other activities.

Here’s your chance to see inside Sugden’s Mill and at the same time take part in some exciting climbing.
