WELLBEING & COMMUNITY FESTIVAL

27 & 28 APRIL 

The Piece Hall will host its first ever Wellness & Community Festival this April; a free two-day event which will help the local community get active and creative, as well as offering much-needed support services.

The Courtyard will host four different ‘zones’ for visitors to explore themed around Active, Creative, Support and Wellbeing. From fitness fanatics to first timers, anyone looking to get moving can try their hand at a whole host of sports including all-adapted cycling, kurling, dance, tai chi, wheelchair basketball and yoga, and also pick up some tips from Sport For All and Threeways Sports Centre. Visitors with a creative flair can try their hand at mindful colouring and stone carving, amongst other calming artistic activities.

An array of Support services will be on offer across the courtyard from charities Basement Recovery Project, Healthy Minds and Samaritans, and there will be food pop-ups and music from community choirs and local musicians. Inspired by the contours and undulations of the local landscape, the public will be invited to collaboratively weave yarns and threads onto an interactive loom structure, building up natural elements through colour and texture. Visitors can add their own message of hope for Calderdale onto a range of surfaces, which will be incorporated into the structure as it grows.
