Tour de Yorkshire Stage 4 Departs from the Piece Hall on Sunday 5 May

Halifax has been awarded the prestigious Purple Flag Award for several years in a row, which recognises both great entertainment and hospitality. The award is only given to towns and cities that meet or surpass standards of excellence and Halifax definitely does that.

The West Yorkshire town is home to some amazing attractions including Eureka! The National Children’s Museum and The Piece Hall – a Grade I listed building and the oldest remaining cloth hall in Britain, now a contemporary leisure, retail, cultural and heritage destination.

On Sunday 5 May stage 4 of the TDY will depart from the stunning Piece Hall, and as well as the cycling there is plenty to enjoy on the day. The Piece Hall will host an afternoon programme of entertainment including Halifax’s number one sea shanty band The Landlubbers and Jump, Jive & Wail who will perform swinging hits from the 1920s through to the 60s. In the courtyard kids can get creative with lots of fun bike-themed crafts including badge making, key ring making and canvas bag decorating. Crafters from the buildings resident Spin a Yarn group will be spinning some colourful pom poms and letter ‘Y’s to celebrate the tour, and alongside The Piece Hall’s resident food and drink spots there will be pop-ups from La Tradizione, Roast and Wrap, Toast of Harrogate, Fishfinger Bar and Zorba.
