Halifax Culture Hub has been set up by Square Chapel Arts Centre and The Piece Hall to create and operate a joint Box Office system.

It’s a joint initiative and exists to promote the wonderful cultural and heritage events happening in our little corner of Yorkshire.

Upon creating a Box Office account with Square Chapel or The Piece Hall you will be able to choose to receive information from one or both organisations.

When signing in to your account on either the Square Chapel or The Piece Hall websites your password will remain the same for both venues and you will be able to manage your bookings from both websites.

Square Chapel is committed to ensuring all customers can participate and enjoy our events equally.  Customers who need someone to be with them to access an event can get a free carer ticket for their companion. We also accept CEA cards for our cinema screenings. These cannot be booked online but all you need to do is call our Box Office team on 01422 349 422 to request the ticket.

Pay As You Feel is about value and risk. It allows you to simply turn up without any prior financial commitment and set your own price tag after the event based on how much you valued the experience.

We hope this flexibility encourages you to join us more regularly. This is a trial for us as much as it is for you, so if you have any thoughts or feedback on how our pricing structures work for you, or where you think there is room for improvement, we’d love to hear from you.

To get in touch, email or call 01422 353 073.

Pay What You Can is about trust and affordability. It’s about you, trusting us in the quality of our programming; and us, trusting you to make a judgement for yourself about what you can afford to pay and take a chance on something new for whatever price will encourage you to come along. In return, we promise a warm Square Chapel welcome and a cracking experience.

Things you need to know…

We won’t ask for any validation or proof of income. We will offer some guidance based on what your ticket might have cost under our normal pricing structure – but that is only there for those who want it. Perhaps you might like to contribute at a higher level to subsidise a ticket at a lower cost for someone less fortunate? You can choose to pay anything from £20 right down to a single £1. You set the price, we’ll set the stage.
