Get lost in music in the Calder Valley

Calderdale, West Yorkshire

Calderdale’s surprising and unique music experiences are the hidden gems of the musical world.

From intimate gigs in charming back-alley pubs to spine-tingling concerts in the ancient Halifax Minster, Calderdale has no shortage of inspiring music venues. Fortunately, there is an array of talented performers in this picturesque valley who are eager to unleash their creativity.

The Doghouse music promoters have just celebrated their 10th year bringing an eclectic line up to the area’s post-industrial backdrop. The Victorian Craft Beer Café is a recent addition to the growing music scene where Americana-styled folk music can be heard ringing out of the speakers. The Puzzle Hall Inn is one of the most talked-about live music venues and plays host to punk, jazz, folk and indie musicians. You’re likely to stumble upon festivals where the ale keeps flowing and the music keeps playing ‘til the early hours. 

Calderdale is in West Yorkshire. Local train station Halifax is approximately 3 hours north of London by train.
