IHBC Yorkshire Branch – tour of Halifax Piece Hall
Saturday, 3rd March 2018
Cost: £6.88 (£5 + VAT + Eventbrite booking fee)
"The Piece Hall is one of Britain’s most extraordinary buildings. Built in 1779 to trade ‘pieces’ of cloth, it is now the UK’s sole surviving cloth hall and offers a unique window back into our past.
Its near 250-year history has seen the building tale on many transformations – in Georgian times as a place for trading locally made ‘Kersey’ and other cloth, later as a gathering point for Victorian spectacles and political rallies. It then became a wholesale marker, before being transformed into a visitor attraction and, most recently, undergoing an extensive conservation programme.
During your visit, we will take you on a journey spanning almost quarter of a millennium. You will meet characters from the past and hear fascinating stories about this truly incredible building.”
