Calderdale Industrial Museum has a brand new exhibition of paintings by local broadcaster Howard Priestley. It is entitled “Ghosts”.
Howard says about his work “ghosts aren’t people, they are memories. Granted, most are thought to be just people but Halifax is haunted by buildings as much as anything. Those buildings belong to our past but are still around us even though nature has taken home in many which reminds us that we share the world with things much greater than us humans and if we no longer need them, nature will happily reclaim them. In doing so it reminds us what we once had and also how there is a new found beauty that haunts us and reminds of the path we once trod”.
Entry to the exhibition is included in the general museum admission fee of £5 adult, £4 concession with free entry for children. Don’t forget to visit their lovely cafe and browse in the museum shop too. The museum, cafe and shop are almost entirely run by volunteers, and every penny spent in the museum goes towards improving and running the museum. Annual passes are also available for only £12, which give unlimited visits for one year from the date of purchase.
