Hebden Bridge Little Theatre was formed in 1924, as a sub-section of the Literary and Scientific Society, and has been producing plays almost continuously ever since. During its early years, the theatre produced plays in the Co-operative Hall, the Picture House, the Band Rooms on the Park, and for forty years (1937–1977), in the Ground Floor of the Trades Club, on Holme Street. For much of this period, the theatre enjoyed tremendous popularity, with a queue of people waiting to become members, so they could receive invitations to productions.
