When did you first visit The Piece Hall?

I first visited The Piece Hall after meeting Nicky Chance-Thompson, CEO of The Piece Hall Trust, at the Women in Business Summit awards event in 2019. First impressions blew me away, I couldn’t believe I was still in Halifax!  You don’t ever imagine a place like this in a small town.


Do you feel that The Piece Hall brings culture to Yorkshire?

Yes - it has history, culture, food, shopping and an open space for anyone who wants to simply enjoy some ‘me’ time.


What’s your favourite shop to visit?

Any craft and home shop – there’s a great selection, which is part and parcel of why shopping at The Piece Hall is such a brilliant experience. Each shop brings their own unique offering, and it’s fantastic to know I’m supporting local, independent retailers.


What opportunities does The Piece Hall bring to Yorkshire?

It brings people together through events, provides support for independent Yorkshire businesses and continues to be a key venue for Yorkshire heritage.


What makes you proud to be an ambassador for The Piece Hall?

I’m proud to be part of such an amazing venue. As an ambassador I have the opportunity to help drive awareness and utilise my skills, knowledge and network to help drive upcoming events.
