HUDDERSFIELD is to go green - and that's official.
The town's tag as a green area will quite literally come true one weekend next month - in the name of art.
Byram Street, in the heart of the town centre, will disappear under a layer of grass and will be closed to traffic.
Our photo of the street - with digitally added grass - shows how it will look.
It is to be turfed over between September 20 and 22 and will become an outdoor art gallery and home to what has been billed as "a large-scale public inter- active public art installation" made from steel and turf.
"The Green" event is part of the Yorkshire Festival of Places.
Huddersfield is one of five towns across Yorkshire taking part. The others are Halifax, Bridlington, Doncaster and Wakefield.
The event is part of Yorkshire Forward's Urban Renaissance programme, which aims to help towns rethink and renew their urban centres.
Yorkshire Forward is paying for the turfing, but exact costs have not yet been revealed.
Byram Street runs from Kirkgate to Northumberland Street, along the top side of Huddersfield Parish Church and St Peter's Gardens.
Tess Butler, director of Huddersfield Pride, said: "The Green will give us a great opportunity to consider how we can start to use the town centre differently.
"The successful town centre and business community of the future will depend on making the town centre an attractive place, where things happen."
Once the turf is laid, cafes and bars will spill out on to Byram Street, with salsa bands and street entertainers adding to the cosmopolitan atmosphere.
The fun will continue late into the Saturday evening.
Members of Opera North will take centre stage on Sunday, entertaining afternoon shoppers as they browse among craft and afternoon stalls which are expected to line the grassed area.
On the Monday, there will be a cycling roadshow, aimed at encouraging people to leave their cars at home and find other ways of travelling to work and into towns.
