Free event Family friendly


Now - Fri 19 Nov 2021


16:00 - 21:00

Join us for Light Up at West Yorkshire History Centre where we will be shedding a light on West Yorkshire’s heritage treasures!

Come and explore original archive material in our exhibition ‘Treasures of the Archive Service’, including items from the Nostell Priory archive collection.

Staff will be on hand to chat about what we do at the History Centre and how we care for the historic archive collections of West Yorkshire.  There will be a chance to take a guided tour of the History Centre and ask our experts about researching your family history.

Free family friendly craft activities will be taking place in our Learning Zone including paper lantern making, mini bookbinding or you can try your hand at deciphering old handwriting and having a go at using Victorian style pens and ink.

Our festive skull (on the plaza outside the History Centre) will also be switched on as part of the celebrations across the city.

Refreshments available.

Light Up takes place throughout the district from 17 Nov – 5 Dec – check out the full programme here, and find the latest news on social by following the hashtag #LightUpWFD
