The second episode of Seat B1*, the new podcast for the arts in Halifax, West Yorkshire is now available for download from iTunes – follow this link – or from your preferred podcast provider. Alternatively, listen directly to the podcast below.
The podcast has been put together by the volunteers of Square Chapel Arts Centre in Halifax but it is not just an elongated advert for events taking place at Square Chapel. The podcast is about the arts in Halifax more generally and in episode 002 – that focuses upon February 2019 – you will find…
- A preview of films being released in the next few weeks; Mary Queen of Scots, Vice, Jellyfish, Green Book and If Beale Street Could Talk with Steve Archer and Jeremy Walker
- A guided tour of the new exhibitions at Dean Clough Mills with the executive director of the Arts Charity at Dean Clough, Vic Allen
- A visit to The Lantern music venue in Alexandra Street, Halifax with the Gig Buddies Project during Independent Venue Week featuring music from the Mind The Gap Band
- A selection of poetry read by Rosi Gemmell who also tells the story behind a new anthology that includes her work, The Night School Poets
