Halifax burgeons with new 'Shoreditch of the north' tagline
guardian shit thread >>>
Havent been to Shoreditch for about twenty years but I used to stop off at Halifax every now and again when on the train and have had some great beer there.
The Hebden Bridge influence no doubt.
Peak Guardian this, with some Daily Mail house price citation to boot. Hateful.

shoreditch has gone all shit, you needn't bother with it again
Halifax is shit. I don't know anyone who's even considered moving there from Leeds. Absolute bullshit.
Also, the quote about house prices is bullshit as well. It just so happens I was looking at what £120k gets you in Leeds only last week, and you can get a 2 bedroom house, no bother.
It will be smaller/shitter than the house in Halifax, true, but that's what living in a shit place does to house prices.
Move to Burnley, Middlesbrough, etc and you'll get even more for your money
Yeah I'd have agreed with you about a year ago. But there is no denying it does seem to have turned a huge corner since the reopening of the Piece Hall and the Square Chapel Arts Centre. It is suddenly worth going to Halifax. I had no idea about these new venues / bands etc, and calling it Shoreditch is a tad OTT but it does have the feel of a place on the up.
thanks for the warning
Booji Boys are from Halifax.

I went to see our very own sojourner perform in a pub/bar in Halifax last year. I was surprised by how good the bar was and also by the people in there, nothing like the Halifax people who come to Hebden Bridge on a pub crawl on Friday nights.
Since then I've heard about a lot of good bars in Halifax and people love the Square Chapel now. Not sure about the Piece Hall though, fabulous building but it still seems a bit soulless.
I still wouldn't want to live there.
