Feature: Halifax's Square Chapel

The Local Theatre Blogging Community is especially excited to feature Halifax's Square Chapel, a unique arts venue in Halifax town centre.

The former Georgian chapel began its arts journey following an extraordinary discovery when theatre lovers rescued and purchased the derelict building one day in 1988.  The Grade II Listed building had undergone an extensive renovation stage by stage, funds permitting, and the venue began holding concerts once the building structure became safe.  The successful renovation simply went from strength to strength attracting a number of artists including comedians, musicians, theatre companies to perform in this historic building and is also home of Orchestra of Square Chapel.

The establishment of Square Chapel must be commended with the Square Chapel Trust's development and hard work to make sure the venue is unique for attracting a diverse and exciting programme of dance, theatre, music, comedy and so forth.  Further history about Square Chapel can be found here.

Square Chapel has a packed programme for the 2014 autumn season; the thought provoking Theatre Ad Infinition's Ballad of the Burning Star and Atresbandes's Solfatara, the moving Chickenshed Theatre's The Rain That Washes, the ever popluar John Godbel's Bouncers and the very dark Shakespeare's MacbethRobin Hood will represent one of the festive highlights, jointly produced with Sticks Theatre.
