Presents all wrapped and under the tree? Or has your shopping not yet begun? If you’ve still got some shopping to do, can you make it your mission to stay local and shop in Kirklees?

Welcome to Huddersfield evenings – Thursday 17th and 24th December 2015

Head into Huddersfield for late night shopping this Thursday or next and you’ll find many of the independent businesses open late for the first time. Through our Welcome to Huddersfield promotion we’re supporting local businesses and venues to entice you through their doors with offers, samples and tasters.

Participating venues are displaying Welcome to Huddersfield posters so keep a look out; you can also like Welcome to Huddersfield on Facebook and follow us on twitter.

All the high street favourites in Huddersfield will also be open until 9pm on these Thursdays, and Queensgate Market until 8pm.
