What's On


The Piece Hall hosts a huge array of events, from contemporary music concerts, to impressive site-specific performances, circus spectacle and street theatre. Seasonal festivities include markets alongside special food and drink celebrations and fairs. Visual arts, a substantive sculpture programme,  outdoor film screenings and large scale participation projects all bring the building to life throughout the year. The Piece Hall’s magnificent courtyard creates a beautiful backdrop for major televised events including the Tour de Yorkshire and the BBC’s Antiques Road Show.

The events programme is a mix of free events and charged admission and run on selected dates throughout the year. 

Note: The Piece Hall shares a box office system with Square Chapel Arts Centre, called Halifax Culture Hub. When signing in to your account on either the Square Chapel or The Piece Hall websites your password is the same for both venues and you will be able to manage your bookings from both websites.
