Calverley Old Hall activities and events

Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the project at Calverley Old Hall will become a catalyst for engagement work with the local and wider community.

Our overarching theme is Crafting Cultures - using traditional craft skills, including building crafts, textiles and food, to connect communities, cultures and heritage. Through these activities we will:

  • Explore and discover the history and context of Calverley Old Hall through research, learning and creative activities that engage with a wide range of people and explore cross-cultural links and influences.
  • Return this ancient manor to prominence and popularity, setting Calverley Old Hall within a regional and national context.
  • Provide accredited training and meaningful work experience opportunities that encourages long term involvement in our heritage and improves life chances for people.
  • Present a programme of events and open days that inspire a range of audiences, and encourage its future use as a venue for small creative events, meetings, and workshops.

Over the coming months, we will hold activities and training sessions both on-site and online, as this fascinating project develops. All the events will be advertised via our website, email newsletter, social media platforms, posters and other local networks. To sign up to our newsletter, please email us.
