Are you stuck in with that ‘what shall we do this weekend’ conundrum? We’re going to offer you up weekend destinations filled with the best quirky happenings, both in and out of the region. Next up, we’ll take you on a little trip around Hebden Bridge…

FILM Hebden Bridge Picture House
Having reopened after the terrible flood damage the West Yorkshire town experienced last year, the Picture House offers indie flicks and live broadcasts alongside the usual bigger movies, plus live music, comedy and much more. Check out their elevenses screening on Thursday mornings, complete with free tea and biscuits.

STAGE Little Theatre
Offering “3D drama without the glasses”, the Little Theatre has been producing plays in Hebden Bridge since 1924. The intimate 120 seat theatre plays host to a variety of amateur and professional touring plays, and the venue holds open castings for their own productions, encouraging all to get involved.

MUSIC The Trades Club
Run as a co-op, The Trades Club is one of the best small venues in the country. Built as a joint enterprise between local trade unions, the venue has hosted such luminaries as Patti Smith, Thurston Moore, Damo Suzuki, Buzzcocks, Edwyn Collins, British Sea Power and many more.

SHOP Muse Music & Love Café
Having recently reopened after experiencing heavy flood damage, the independent record store offers up a diverse range of genres with typically knowledgeable zeal. The attached (and finely named) Love Café provides “fine snacks and coffee from heaven” as you listen to their eclectic office stereo. Open Wednesdays to Sundays.

Independent arts and music festival Inkfolk put on regular parties that are well worth checking out.
