Tour de Yorkshire

Tour de Yorkshire 2018

On Sunday 6th May 2018 The Piece Hall hosted the start of Stage 4 of the Tour de Yorkshire, ‘The Yorkshire Terrier’.

The weather was glorious and The Piece Hall looked amazing with it’s honey coloured stone standing out against the blue sky and festooned with bright yellow bunting. It was was packed with people and everyone seemed to be having a lovely day. It was great publicity for Halifax and The Piece hall, and I even got a chance to plug the bookshop on Radio Leeds. There were cheers as the cyclists arrived and paraded round the courtyard, before being introduced on the stage and then lining up at the start. As the crowd’s countdown sent them on their way, a big screen let us follow their progress through Yorkshire and the Calder Valley.  The TDY staging was cleared away and the courtyard filled with music and entertainers for the afternoon. Here are some pictures to give a flavour of a fantastic day.
