We came as part of a short break staying at a hotel at the edge of Halifax. Found out about a free organ concert at Halifax Minster and spent the whole day in the town.
We were welcomed by a friendly lady who not only told us all about what was happening on the day (lunch and concert), but also gave us a leaflet about the building. She was also happy to provide us with any additional information about the church.
The organ concert was one of a series of music by Mendelssohn most expertly played by Simon Lindley and well introduced. The concert was free with a retiring collection. Before the concert there was the opportunity to partake in a parish lunch for an amazing £4 which was brilliant value considering all there was on offer! All the money from today's events were part of fund-raising for the Minster. It was really nice to see the initiatives to make fund-raising so much fun for locals and visitors. Thumbs up!
