IT IS the weekend that the Lawrence Batley Theatre throws open its doors to invite in the people of Huddersfield.
The theatre’s annual summer fayre is on August 13 which coincides neatly with the Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival.
Now in its eleventh year, Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival is one of Yorkshire’s largest free food festivals, running for four days every August and set against the backdrop of St George’s Square.
For the LBT’s summer fayre, the Georgian building and its courtyard space will be packed with arts and craft stalls.
There will also be a chance to get involved in workshops or theatre tours and see performances.
Local and regional artists will sell their work on indoor and outdoor art and craft stalls.
Expect everything from jewellery to books, pictures, cards and fashion accessories.
There will also be free entertainment from the Huddersfield Light Opera Company and the Huddersfield Circle of Magicians.
You can also get more hands on with the help of some of the LBT’s visual artists who will be running hour long workshops for which there will be a small charge.
