In 1930, Hebden Bridge Little Theatre negotiated with the Hebden Bridge Band to rehearse in their Pavilion, on Calder Holmes. Later, this arrangement was extended, and the premises were hired to the theatre at ‘a very nominal fee, with the additional privilege of making any structural alterations which our needs demanded’. In 1931, the theatre established itself in the Bandroom, beginning a very successful six year period.
The arrangement came to a premature end when the Town Council decided to buy the ground on which the Bandroom stood, in order to make the Recreation Ground in Calder Holmes Park. The attached correspondence from the Hebden Bridge Band concerns the initial hire for rehearsals, and the subsequent conditions applied for making alterations.
In 1937, after a twelve month search, the theatre found a new home in the ground floor of the Trades Club.
