Hebden Bridge Market has moved

Dave Young has given us some useful information about Hebden Bridge Market which we would like to share as some visitors to Hebden Bridge may not be aware of the new Hebden Bridge Market situation so here it is straight from the Horse’s Mouth, as it were:
The new Hebden Bridge Market is up and running today (thursday 13th  at Lees Yard. It will be a 4 day Hebden Bridge Market. Thursday as Usual, Friday – Bric-a-brac, Saturday Local Artisan Market – Arts & Crafts etc and Sunday Local Produce Market.

Hebden Bridge Market Transfers to Lees Yard

The new, and hopefully better, Hebden Bridge Market opens on Thursday 13 April 2017 (today) in its new area of Lees Yard on the side of St George’s Square.

Work has been happening over the last 10 weeks to prepare the site for the all new Hebden  market. Alterations have actually been made to the existing format and also include a new prep work unit for traders, storage facility for stalls and also public lavatories.

Along with the regular Thursday market, the bric-a-brac market which typically opens on a Wednesday will change to every Friday, in Lees Yard, from Friday 14 April (Good Friday).

There will also be an added, new Saturday market, selling crafts as well as craftsmen items. This will be every Saturday, from 15 April.

The Sunday local produce market will stay in Lees Yards and will now open each and every Sunday

Dave Young was at the market this morning for an interview with BBC Radio Leeds which was broadcast earlier today

Hebden Bridge Duck Race 2017

New Products in the Shop for Easter Holidays

Soon Hebden Bridge Duck Race 2017 will be upon us. Last year’s Hebden Bridge Duck Race was well attended although not as well as the Hebden Bridge Duck race of 2015. This was due to the disaster that befell Hebden Bridge on Boxing Day 2o16.

This year we are hoping the Hebden Bridge Duck Race will be a huge event with hopefully even more people attending than there were in 2015. Again because of Bill’s love of Chelsea FC we are supporting the Blue Team in the business Duck Race challenge, the author’s (Robert A Williams) feeling though is that the Red Team, supported by Cafe Solo, Homely at Hebden, and others will triumph.

Saw Lego Batman Movie Opening Night – And I Was Not Disappointed!

Lego Batman Movie Coming to Hebden Bridge Picture House Next Weekend

Lego Batman Movie

Images Originating from: https://imgflip.com/i/1jo9me

With the Lego Batman Movie coming to the Hebden Bridge Picture House in 12 days time, we can see the excitement that has already been generated from the general release on 10th February. We have written about Lego Batman before on this blog and have held out seeing the new movie until it’s release in our local Independent Cinema, The Hebden Bridge Picture House.

What have the critics said ?
Owen Gleiberman in Variety says:
The first thing to say about “The Lego Batman Movie” is that it’s kicky, bedazzling, and super-fun. The second thing to say about it is that, like “The Lego Movie” (2014), it’s a kiddie flick that’s been made in a sophisticated spirit of lightning-fast, brain-bursting paradox. The movie uses digital animation to create the illusion that it’s set in a herky-jerky universe of plastic Lego bricks — but it has such a kaleidoscopic, anything-goes flow that it trumps the imagination of just about any animated feature you could name. The characters are Lego minifigures with pegs for heads and crudely etched faces that barely move, yet they have more personality than the majority of human actors. Most delicious of all: “The Lego Batman Movie” comes on like a kid-friendly sendup of the adult world, yet there’s a dizzying depth to its satirical observations that grows right out of the spectacularly fake settings, which are hypnotic to look at but have the effect of putting postmodern quotation marks around…everything.
Originally published here

We have plenty of Lego Batman Minifgures left for all of you trying to complete the Lego Batman Movie Minifgure collection of twenty minifigures. As this is a limited edition release of minifgures you can expect them to increase in value just as the Lego Movie (2014) Minifgures have done. See image below:
Lego Movie MinifguresOriginal Price £2.49 RRP per minifigure so one set would cost 16 x £2.49 = £39.84 if you can determine each minifgure individually

Sale price £79.99 which is pretty much double the cost price.
