Halifax Civic Trust To Host National Civic Voice Spring Convention
Civic Voice is teaming up with the Yorkshire and Humber Association of Civic Societies and Halifax Civic Trust. The event will take place in Halifax, a town that has been the setting for some of the UK’s most popular TV dramas, including Gentleman Jack, Happy Valley, and Last Tango in Halifax.
The event will include a full programme of activities that you won’t want to miss, including town tours and an evening dinner on Friday, 19th May, and a one-day convention focused on ‘Pride in Place’ on Saturday, 20th May. Pride in Place is Civic Voice’s key theme for 2023, and the convention will explore how communities can take pride in their local area and how they can work together to protect and promote it for future generations.
One of the highlights of the event will be a visit to The Piece Hall, a building that was originally conceived as a cloth hall but has been transformed into a contemporary leisure, retail, cultural, and heritage destination. The Piece Hall was nominated by Halifax Civic Trust in 2018 for the Civic Voice Design Awards and was awarded the Judges’ Special Prize that year. The restoration of The Piece Hall was a major project that was funded by Calderdale Council, a generous £7m HLF grant, and support from the Garfield Weston Foundation and Wolfson Foundation.
