Our Events

We have a wide range of events taking place in our building and use our Facebook page to promote these.
Click here  to go to our Facebook page and view these.
Our events are organised by a range of people: local individuals, Kirklees Library Service, Kirkwood Hospice and DDCL.
Many of these events are groups who meet regularly, including talks about books and poetry; several craft groups; history.
They meet from weekly to monthly. Some charge a fee, like meditation, but most are free and open to anyone to join. Some are aimed at specific groups, for example, for children or those living with dementia.

You can also really help us by making a regular, monthly donation of £1 or more, as a member of our Supporters Club.
