To celebrate Christmas a bespoke light installation will be projected onto one of Yorkshire’s most magnificent buildings.An enchanted trading place. Where people gather, magic musters. They come to buy and they come to sell. They trade exotic spices and magical potions, charms and trinkets, rugs made of thread spun from light itself and technology yet to be imagined.
While the transformation of The Piece Hall continues inside, watch as a tale of a parallel universe unfolds, illuminating the external walls as characters exchange goods and meet at The Night Market.
The Night Market is a bespoke installation, created by acclaimed artists Chris Mould and Matt Howarth, that will be brought to life through animated illustrations that light up The Piece Hall’s north wall.
Launching as part of The Spirit of Halifax Festival, when the town’s lights switch on, there’s also free creative lantern workshops and an exhibition from Brooksbank School on the opening day.
Supported by Arts Council England’s Cultural Destinations programme.
