The People Person Show

Hebden Bridge Visitors’ Centre for the month of March

Simon ShawThe People Person Show is inspired by the death last July of Simon Shaw. He was the owner of Legacy Comics in Halifax, an aficionado in his genre, a poet, a friend to many and an inspirational guy.

A few of his artist friends have come together and produced new works under a collective umbrella, celebrating those with the gift of bringing people and ideas together. Francis Charlton is an artist who was a poetic mentor to Simon, and this time last year he had his first book of poetry published ‘Spectral Lines’ - Verses In Modern Day Technicolour.

Vintage Weekend

Hebden Bridge will, once again, be the place to be on the 3rd and 4th August 2019 when the Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge hosts the iconic charity fund raising Hebden Bridge Vintage Weekend.

Vintage car weekend

This will be the 37th year for the event which is now well established as a premier attraction for the display of some 800 veteran, vintage and classic cars, motorcycles, military & commercial vehicles. Last year's event was our best ever, breaking all records in entrants, spectators and funds raised. With your help we can make this year's event even bigger.

Held in the heart of Hebden Bridge, at Calder Holmes Park, (HX7 8AU), most of the famous British marques are represented at the rally, along with famous names from across the world. The open plan layout of the site allows members of the public to get up close to the exhibits and chat to their owners. There are different display classes over the two days offering visitors a completely different show each day. Prizes will be awarded to all the winning entrants.
