Description

The Piece Hall is a unique Grade 1 listed Georgian masterpiece in the heart of Halifax. Built to provide a marketplace for Halifax's hugely successful trade in cloth, it's now home to shops, cafes and the Halifax Visitor Centre and Art gallery. Calderdale Council is to give the Piece Hall a new lease of life, supported by a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund. The £18.9m transformation project will see the Piece Hall turned into a popular visitor attraction boasting quality shops, cafes and restaurants, creative businesses and an events programme.

This seminar and site visit will provide an overview of the building's architectural significance and explain the actions that the Council is taking to ensure its future.

Sponsored by Calderdale Council and held in association with the RTPI Historic Environment Group.
