“Good place for the arts”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

There are a regular shows here throughout the year ranging from live theatre to music and other arts events. There are plans for a major refurbishment to link the square chapel to the piece hall and create a new arts quarter for Halifax which will be an exciting development. At present it is a very friendly small theatre with an excellent programme of events throughout the year and also excellent value. There is a bar for pre and intermission drinks

“Former Chapel - now an Art and Music venue”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

This 18th Century brick-built former Congregational Church chapel is the only remaining square chapel in the country. After laying dormant and empty for many years, it was refurbished and is now a vibrant and well-used centre for entertainment and the arts. It is so good to see this lovely old building flourishing once again. Highly recommended.
