KLTV was recently invited to attend the grand finale of this year’s Kirklees Heritage Open Days; Hi! Celebrate Heritage in the Hudd.
The family-friendly event celebrated Kirklees’ history and culture through walks, talks, films, exhibition displays, stalls, a carnival performance, and live music!
Kicking things off was the Heritage Mile Walk, a guided tour through some of Huddersfield’s most iconic buildings. The walk allowed attendees to learn more about the town’s history and marvel at the beauty of the architecture.
The fabulous Hive Cafe was also open throughout the morning, where the fantastic Kiklees-based artist Helen Robinson ran a brilliant family-friendly arts and crafts session featuring a limited edition Huddersfield colouring book.
As the day went on, the Huddersfield Open Market hosted an afternoon of films, art, food and drink, stalls and exhibitions linked to Huddersfield’s heritage. From film showings to delicious food, there was something for everyone to enjoy.
The day concluded with a celebration of Jamaican music, dance and good vibes courtesy of the Townsounds Street Party! Featuring Marshall D, Positive and Dee Bo General spinning a musical selection of ska, rocksteady, reggae and roots, playing strictly vinyl in the traditional one-deck style, and powered by Zion Inna Vision Sound System.
Hi! Celebrate Heritage in the Hudd was an absolute blast and a true showcase of the history, heritage and culture present in Huddersfield and Kirklees.
