Street Salsa Saturday (with Esref Parranda Ulas!)

The Street Salsa event we've been waiting for!


If you like music and you enjoy dancing, come and join us this Saturday, 30th July 2016 (5pm - 7:30pm'ish), on the Wavy Duck Steps in Bridgegate, to see and/or take part in some street salsa.

The energetic and exuberant (Cuban Salsa teacher) Eşref Parranda Ulaş, will be coming all the way from Sheffield to Hebden Bridge to show us how it's done - and how to do it!

Dancers with some salsa experience, particularly male and female Leaders - we can never have enough of those! - are especially welcome, as we're hoping that Esref can whip us all up into an exciting Rueda!

From now until then, keep checking our Happy Valley Salsa Facebook Page for updates, as we may have to look for an indoor venue if the weather forecast changes to torrential rain. So far, it's looking good .....

Obviously, we don't charge, but donations would be really appreciated. (Look out for our Happy Valley Salsa Jar .....)

To find out a bit more about Esref, where he's based and what he does, check out his 'Parranda Page' on Facebook .....

Cosmic Egg Present David Barbarossa

Upstairs @ The Golden Lion, Todmorden

Plus support from Cosmic Egg DJ's
7pm till late
£2 entry

Now that Golden Lion roof terrace is properly open for business (how good was the all dayer?!), we couldn't wait to make the most of it and have a bit of a Cosmic Egg party out there too. We'll be starting early outside to make the most of the August evening sunshine (fingers crossed!) before moving indoors for more Cosmic Egg night moves.

And if that's not enough, we couldn't help ourselves and had to bring down one of Scotland's best DJs to really tear things up - David Barbarossa. As a big favourite at Glasgow's Sub Club and a prolific disco editor (see his Hanarossa edits with local favourite Andi Hanley), we know he'll bring the house down.

Hebden Bridge Partnership AGM

Our Town 2016

Anyone who has been to the Partnership's AGM ("Hebden Bridge: Our Town") will know that this is a special occasion. Last year, no less than 39 local organisations and groups took advantage of the invitation to say a few short words about their activities and future plans. In fact, we had so many groups that we had to shrink the traditional three minute slots to two-and-a-half minutes.

We hope that you will make sure that any organisations you are involved with take up our offer of a slot – and that you will help swell the numbers by being with us in person yourself. The key information to give you at this stage is the date: Monday October 24th, with a 7pm start. We have booked the Town Hall's Waterfront Hall for the occasion.
