Posted on Updated on

Czerwik of Brighouse is well known for its fun cheese and wine tasting evenings which have been held for many years in the shop at Brighouse on a private party basis for groups of friends, family etc. who want to celebrate an event – or simply just to get together for a fun evening.

Business for Calderdale is lucky enough to have secured owner of Czerwick and master Cheesemonger John, for the BFC Christmas cheese and wine evening at the Piece Hall on Thursday 6 December, 7:00pm-9:30pm.

There will be three white wines followed by one beer then three red wines.

Each wine and beer is complemented with a matching cheese, and John will take you through each product providing as much information as possible. The theme for the tasting is simple ‘have fun’ so the whole evening takes on an informal and relaxed atmosphere. John is around to answer any questions you may have on any of the wines or cheeses experienced during the tasting.

There are 50 places available tickets are £25.00 per person and can be booked through Eventbrite.

Halifax Steampunk Market Comes to Calderdale Industrial Museum

Posted on Updated on

Halifax Steampunk Market will be held Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 September 2018, 11:00am-5:00pm at Calderdale Industrial Museum, Square Rd, Halifax HX1 1QG.

Outdoor entertainment is to be confirmed but there will be a flying display from one of Amy Jo Lawrance​’s owls from her Flying Squadron on both days at 1:00pm. This will most likely be in grounds of the Piece Hall which is immediately behind the museum.

Recruiting for the Coffee Jousting (that’s right!) commences from 3:00pm for the tournament to take place at 4:00pm on the Saturday only.

Captain Cumberpatch’s Curious Creations will be donating medals for the prizewinners (silver, gold and two bronze) and one also for the Coffee Jousting Beanmaster (the host).

There will be a tombola run to raise money for a named charity which all the traders will be donating to.

A vintage tearoom will be there for the weekend selling lovely homemade cake and cuppas. There will be no hot food vendors outside this time as there’s very little outdoor space plus the museum backs onto the Piece Hall where there are other cafes for normal food plus there is a Burger King just the other side of the museum.

Don’t forget you need to pay admission to the museum itself as you will be able to see all the exhibitions there as well.

Customers will be paying normal admission to the Industrial Museum itself to be able to access the traders as you will be mixed in with the whole building, the displays and the layout.

Admission prices are: £5 per adult. Concessions £4. Accompanied children enter free.

If you are interested in trading please email leedssteampunkmarket@gmail.com.
