The Piece Hall was reopened in 2017 following extensive refurbishment and renovation. The former Georgian cloth worker’s hall is now a centre for culture and commerce within the Calderdale district, and plays host to an impressive calendar of live events and unique performances throughout the year.The-Cribs-2
