To celebrate the Tour de France coming to Calderdale, staff from the Halifax Visitor Centre are heading to Brighouse’s Totally Locally Victorian market, with their first ever pop up shop.
Staff will be available all day on Market Street, Brighouse, on Saturday November 30 to talk all things tour, along with any other tourism enquiries.
Details will be given about where the route travels through Calderdale, how to volunteer to be a route maker, set up your own celebration event and what’s happening on the day both on and off route.
Visitor Centre staff will have a whole range of information on what else is happening in the build up to the tour.
For the first time there will be a 100 day cultural festival leading up to the race which passes through Calderdale on July 6.
Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities, Councillor Steve Sweeney, said: ““Our knowledgeable staff will be able to help you with a wide range of information about the Tour de France in Calderdale.
“This is an opportunity to check out the best places to see the tour, and also find out about the events going on across Calderdale during the 100 day cultural festival starting on the March 2.”
