Cuff and Taylor – the promoters who brought Britney Spears, Lewis Capeldi, Doran Doran and Kylie to Scarborough – have agreed a five-year deal with The Peace Hall Trust to co-promote the show.
The deal would mean more big names performing at Peace Hall.
Northwest-based promoters – part of Live Nation Entertainment, the world’s leading live entertainment company – say there will be more than a dozen open-air shows at the historic site this June and July.
The headliners announced so far include Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Paul Weller, Paloma Faith, Tom Jones, Primal Scream and Nile Rodgers & CHIC.
Peter Taylor, founder of Cuff and Taylor, said: “We are pleased to confirm that we have entered into a special five-year agreement with The Peace Hall Trust.
“This historic and famous site in Yorkshire is magnificent. We are committed to advancing the work already undertaken by the Trust and offering an exciting program that has a wide appeal to music fans.”
“Live Nation works with the world’s biggest music act and we can’t wait to bring great artists to Halifax to run this special place.”
Sir Roger Marsh, Chair of The Peace Hall Trust, said: “Our vision for Peace Hall is to have world-class attractions, which means we need to host world-class artists and Cuff and Taylor and Live Nation. Has the expertise to supply it.
“A lot has been achieved since we reopened four years ago and I’m incredibly proud of that, but we are very excited for the future.
“This new partnership with a leader in the entertainment world and a promoter with a great reputation will see our magnificent building welcome some great works, which will strengthen The Peace Hall’s reputation as a leading music venue.” At the same time, it will secure income for the trust and the economic regeneration of Calderdale and Yorkshire. “
Nicky Chance-Thompson, Chief Executive Officer of The Peace Hall Trust, said: Great track record to date.
“We can’t wait to see more big names for this year’s season as The Peace Hall’s reputation for world-class live music continues to grow.”
