Halifax Unity building community links in our communities

Halifax Unity is a new community interest company on a mission to create stronger links between our communities in Halifax, to co-create our shared future, build trust and resilience.

We create spaces for specific groups to come together with shared intention for mutual support and solidarity, and we co-design events and projects that bring these groups together to make new links. We believe we have many of the answers we need within our communities, and we are stronger together. If you share this vision of unity in our diversity and co-creating our shared future, we would love to connect with you and hear your ideas ūüôā Here are a few things coming up…

РTrans and allies group РA safe and inclusive group for anyone that identifies as trans or gender non conforming and allies (partners/parents/friends). Get in touch if you would like to find out more and please pass on to family, friends, colleagues and people who use your services and may appreciate the connection.

–¬†Improv / drama group¬†– We are planning a new project for the new year combining play and self expression with opportunities for seldom heard voices to come forward. Whether you are interested in learning to act, to gain confidence to be who you are, to play at being different characters, or if you have a story to tell, or simply want to try something new, get in touch. We would particularly love this group to work for people in the most deprived areas of Halifax/Calderdale and for anyone who feels excluded or finds it hard to access other spaces. Everyone is¬†welcome here. Get in touch if you want to know more.

Want to keep updated? You can find out more and contact us through our website halifaxunity.org or by email info@halifaxunity.org.

StickMan Live on Stage!

Touching, funny and utterly original, Freckle Productions’ delightful adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s Stick Man is back in town!

What starts off as a morning jog becomes quite the misadventure for Stick Man: a dog wants to play fetch with him, a swan builds a nest with him, and he even ends up on a fire! How will Stick Man ever get back to the family tree?

This award-winning production, from the team behind Zog, Tiddler and other Terrific Tales, and Tabby McTat features a trio of top actors and is packed full of puppetry, songs, live music and funky moves.

There are four performances to choose from:

Friday 1.30pm and 4.00pm
Saturday 10.30am and 1.30pm

To book your tickets, visit here: Stick Man at the Victoria Theatre
