A fascinating insight into the history of our Great British Public Park. Having enjoyed them, what do we know about them and their origins? Great Royal Parks, 18C Pleasure Gardens to their Victorian heyday. What is ’parkitecture’? Examples of lodges, lakes, bandstands, fountains, lidos, palm houses and floral displays, to their decline in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.The design and architecture of parks from across the UK
is examined, including Halifax.

Unreserved Seating – Seats are unreserved and you will need to choose your seat as you enter the venue. If you wish to sit together with people you have arrived with, we recommend arriving at doors open time to choose consecutive seats although we do not guarantee this is possible. Ushers may also ask you to move or condense your group to free up seating for other audience members to be seated.

  • You can access this space from our main entrance at the front of the building, the doors to this space are on the same level.
  • This is a seated and standing space, depending on the performance.
  • There are two access seats in our Red Brick space.
  • For standing events, you can request an access seat at the point of booking.
  • To access the toilets you need to use the lift from the foyer to the ground floor where you will find our access toilet, baby changing facility and a Changing Places facility.
  • We have two parking spaces at the front of our building (just outside the Southgate entrance of The Piece Hall) and two spaces down the side of our building just off Square Road. These spaces are available for Square Chapel customers and you must book spaces in advance of your visit, and display a blue badge.
  • Booking the access parking spaces means you will enter the building from our stage door area and will need to use the lift to take you to the foyer, kitchen, bar and Red Brick space.
