Fancy becoming a Gig Buddy?

Gig Buddies Calderdale is an exciting new initiative which will seek to match people who have a learning disability with volunteers who have similar interests.
The aim of the project is to promote friendship and increase opportunities for people who have a learning disability to become involved in their local community.
The idea of a ‘gig’ is up to you and you and your buddy will meet monthly to choose and plan an event you would like to go to.
It could be music, festival, theatre, cinema, a walk in the park – it is entirely led by our Gig Buddies and Gig Goers.
Gig Buddies was pioneered in 2013 by Brighton based charity ‘Stay Up Late’ and is now running in Scotland and Sydney, Australia.
Gig Buddies Calderdale is based at Square Chapel Arts Centre in Halifax which is at the heart of cultural events – watch this space!
The project works with people with a learning disability aged 16 and upwards and for Gig Buddy volunteer roles, you must be 18 plus.

Eureka Superhero Weekend

Ever wondered what your super power would be? Super-strength? Invisibility? Find out at Eureka’s annual Superhero Weekend! Fly over to Halifax to meet some of your favourite superheroes plus a super villain or two on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 September 2017.

Join forces with Batman and Wonder Woman as they confront supervillains Harley Quin and Joker, who are attempting to take over the museum as part of their latest dastardly plan. Or maybe you’ve always wondered whether it would be more fun to be a bit evil for the day, after all Joker and Harley Quinn certainly know how to enjoy themselves! So whose side will YOU be on?

The weekend will include regular appearances from the Transformer Bumblebee, with loads of opportunities for your little Transformer fans to meet and pose for photos with the 10ft robot-in-disguise!

If you’ve got what it takes to be a superhero (or villain) grab your cape, strap on your utility belt and fly down to Eureka! Activities are included in the price of standard admission or free to Eureka! Annual Pass holders.
