Some of the activities may be messy, so please wear suitable clothes.
If coming from Halifax town centre, go past the B+M store on your left and up Shaw Hill towards the Shay Football Stadium. Opposite the entrance to the Shay, you will see a tower block on your left. Turn left here onto Simmonds Lane. Ahead, you will see a tall chimney, which reads ‘Shaw Lodge Mills’.
Keep following the road round and you will see the entrance to our car park up to the right. You can park here and walk down the steps, or carry on and hope for a free parking space outside The Artworks, although it can be tricky to turn around, if these are taken. There are 4 parking bays outside our main entrance.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
