Conversations about Music in Queensgate Market

What is important to you about music? What is your favourite venue and why?

We are are looking to develop a new space for sound and music in Huddersfield along with music organisations – a Sound Space – a place to enjoy the richness and diversity of music, a space to experiment and learn. What would you want from a Sound Space?

Following on from her Growing Cultures project about culture in Huddersfield, artist Jean McEwan will be exploring your ideas for a new Sound Space for Huddersfield.

Call in and see Jean in the Growing Cultures space in Queensagate Market. You can also leave your thoughts, ideas and comments any other day the market is open (Mon – Sat).

Sounds Like The Seekers

Sounds Like The Seekers is an incredible new show that faithfully recreates the magic of 1960s super-group, The Seekers.

The performance of the show’s star, Samantha, as the group’s lead singer Judith Durham, has been highly acclaimed. The Stage newspaper described Samantha’s vocals as “Perfection”.

This new show has been written and produced by Andy Tebbutt-Russell and features all of The Seekers’ most popular songs, including their two number ones ‘The Carnival Is Over’ and ‘I’ll Never Find Another You’. The Seeker had 6 UK Top 10 hits and Georgy Girl’ remains one of their best-loved songs.

“The band sold over 50 million records, worldwide. I’ve chosen the cream of the crop for this show,” said Andy.

The Amity Cinema Presents – LABYRINTH

Join The Amity Cinema at the Holmfirth Civic Hall for a screening of the fantasy classic ‘Labyrinth’.

‘I ask for so little. Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave.’

Fifteen-year-old Sarah resents her baby brother Toby and secretly wishes that he will just disappear. Her wish comes true when goblins kidnap the boy. Feeling responsible and guilty about his abduction, she sets forth to retrieve him, and finds herself on the adventure of a lifetime. To rescue her brother, she must sneak into the castle of the Goblin King, which is in the center of a fantastical labyrinth. But, the task is easier said than done, for the maze is filled with strange creatures and mind-bending puzzles, and nothing is really as it seems.
