We've reached the middle of the week - and if you've got the whole day to yourself, we've got some fun Wednesday activities for you.
If you're a fan of live dance, enjoy local history or have an interest in the natural world, there's events happening in West Yorkshire today (September 24) that might be of interest.
Here's three things to do in West Yorkshire today:
- Take a walk on the wild side - Ever wondered how nature documentaries capture those breathtaking shots of birds in flight, or lions hunting their prey? Do you want to know how those impressive images of minute insects in their natural habitat were captured? Head to the National Media Museum in Bradford and check out its Nature, Camera, Action! exhibit, revealing the tricks of the trade and interviews from wildlife photographer and filmmakers. Spread across two floors, the interactive displays show you how to photograph insects, experience what its like to film underwater and reveal fascinating facts about how we capture the natural world on film. Admission is free.
- Remember the Holme Valley Lads - Events are taking place across the country to mark the centenary of the First World War and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for King and Country. Local historian Pamela Cooksey hopes to shed light on the soldiers who travelled to the trenches from the Holme Valley area, in her talk, The Holme Valley Lads. The talk begins at 7.30pm at Holmfirth Library, Huddersfield Road, Holmfirth. Admission is free.
- Feel the Latin rhythms - Combining classical ballet with Latin dance rhythms, Grupo Corpo are a lively dance company hailing from Brazil - and they're performing at the Alhambra Theatre, Bradford, this evening. Grupo Corpo translates as Group Body, reflecting the movement style of the dancers. Tickets cost £19.50-£26.50 - click here to book.
