Featuring events, workshops and opportunities, here is the latest Creative Kirklees newsletter:


 

Creative Kirklees Newsletter 9 January 2018

The New Year is well and truly underway but have you made any resolutions yet? If not, why don’t you make one to take in a concert? Still to come in January, the Kirklees Concert Season brings to Huddersfield Town Hall “Gordon Stewart” as part of the organ recital series, and Opera North’s “From Hollywood with Love” which is a must for movie lovers who are bound to recognise the tunes. For Gilbert and Sullivan fans, the “Jeremy Peaker Ensemble” returns to Dewsbury Town Hall, with a foray into the world of Savoy Opera.  Go on, give one a go this January!
Do read on to find other creative ideas of things to see and do in the week/s ahead, and to find out the latest creative news and opportunities!
