Huddersfield is fortunate to have a spectacular town hall concert venue that many visiting artistes rate as one of the best in the country.
Throughout the year it hosts programmes of musical and entertainment events to rival many of the region’s busiest theatres and arenas.
Coming up in the next two months alone are concerts by a world-class orchestra, tribute rock gigs, the Yorkshire Brass Band Championships, Blues Brothers musical, Mrs Sunderland Festival and an evening with soprano Lesley Garrett.
We’ve picked out just a handful of the top events on offer. To see more visit kirkleestownhalls.co.uk
