Press release! To celebrate the reopening of the stunning Grade II listed Causey Hall, in central Halifax, the charity responsible for bringing it back to life are inviting the public to take part in a day of creative learning activity.

The Creative Learning Guild, a local charity who have been operating for more than 30 years, have refurbished the former school for orphans into a space to be used for community for learning activities. 

The charity welcomes members of the public to join local dignitaries in attending its free opening event on Saturday 24th November from 10:30am to 4pm. During the event there will be activities for all ages, focused on making learning both  creative and fun. Visitors will be able to rebuild Causey Hall in cardboard on a grand scale, enjoy a storytelling performance focused on historic characters who may have used the building and play a digital interactive game to learn more about the history. 

The charity is also hoping to meet individuals with memories of the building and to transform their memories into an impressive piece of art. Director of the Creative Learning Guild, Gilly Bryerley said:

‘Seeing the transformation of this beautiful gothic building back to its former glory has been truly inspiring. It’s been particularly wonderful to have involved disabled children and young people in the architectural planning for the refurbishments, which seems incredibly fitting given that Causey Hall has always been a place that supports disadvantaged children. We are enormously grateful to the team at Bamford Developments who have made the refurbishment possible and cannot wait to share both the history and future of this building with the community” ’ –
