Welcome to The Arts Society Halifax

Established in 2000 in the heart of Pennine Yorkshire, our Society offers a high quality and wide ranging programme of lectures and visits and welcomes everyone with an interest in the arts and their history.

We meet in Halifax's beautiful Square Chapel Arts Centre, originally based in the Grade II listed red brick Georgian Chapel, one of only a handful of square churches ever built. It now has a stunning, modern extension linking directly to the historic Piece Hall, described by Tristram Hunt as the "Piazza San Marco of Yorkshire" and included in the top ten Industry, Trade & Commerce places that help tell "A History of England in a 100 Places".  It is centrally placed and is easily accessible by road, rail and bus.  Do join us. 

A link to a membership form is below on the right.

You can "Try before you buy" full membership by purchasing a ticket for an individual lecture from Square Chapel Box Office.
