Skipton Town Hall celebrates half term success


The team at Skipton Town Hall is celebrating a hugely successful half term week which saw almost 2,000 people enjoying cultural events as part of the new Autumn/Winter events season.

With performances of children’s theatre show ‘Monstersaurus’ from the creators of Aliens Love Underpants, to BIG Draw animation workshops with master animator Virpi Kettu, a Museums at Night for the grown-ups, the final week of the Art in Mind exhibition, plus the Skipton Rotary Club hosting Black Dyke Band, there really was something for everyone at the Town Hall.

Feedback on the latest seasonal programme has been incredibly positive – visitors had this to say:

“Well done Skipton Town Hall! It was a great day for everyone! Thanks for hosting!” – Attendee at BIG Draw workshop

The Autumn/Winter programme continues with more fantastic theatre, exhibitions, contemporary dance and live music throughout November, from Wuthering Heights to Joseph Toonga, the start of the Craven Arts Christmas exhibition and Mambo Jambo acoustic roots duo – there is plenty to see and do!

Danielle Daglan, Programming and Venue Development Manager for Craven District Council, said: “We are incredibly pleased that this season’s programme is getting such a positive response. We listen carefully to all feedback and are constantly considering what our audiences here in Craven, and our visitors, want to see and do, so it’s wonderful to see so many people enjoying themselves and getting a lot out of coming to Skipton Town Hall.”
