There is a huge amount of interest in the re-opening of Halifax’s historic Piece Hall on Yorkshire Day - Tuesday, August 1 - and people are being encouraged to use public transport to get there.
The gates will open on the £19m completed project at around 9.30am before the restored trading bell is rung to start a new era in its history at 10am.
All are welcome to come along and enjoy a day which has lots of entertainment, the chance to explore new spaces, learn more about its fantastic history and get the first chance to shop in the restored units.
But if possible the Piece Hall team are encouraging visitors to use Halifax’s excellent bus and train links to get there and enjoy the day without the pressure of finding somewhere to park.
The town’s railway and bus stations are just a few minutes’ walk from the Piece Hall, with regular services from most parts of Calderdale and beyond.
