HRAX‬ aka Hebden Royd Alternative Christmas – 25th June 2016 in Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd. All welcome, residents and visitors alike.


After the devastation caused by the Boxing Day floods tearing through the towns of the Upper Calder Valley, it was suggested that it would be worth “re-running” Christmas Day six months later.

This was met with great local support and we now have well over 1900 people in this group! There have also been interviews on BBC Leeds and the Pulse about it.

Main purposes

  • That the two towns have a party, because they deserve it
  • That we show the outside world we are back up and open for business
  • That we invite those volunteers who came to help us in our time of need to join us for Christmas lunch where those who were helped will serve them

Alternative Christmas







Hebden Royd Alternative Christmas Day!
25th Jun 2016

HRAX aka Hebden Royd Alternative Christmas – 25th June 2016 in Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd.

Primary Locations
– St George’s Square and Bridge Gate
– Riverside School
– Holme Street
– Calder Holmes Park
– Burnley Road Academy Playing Fields
– The Town Hall Hebden Bridge

WHAT’S ON (so far, anyway. There will almost certainly be more.)

Mytholmroyd Gala will be on that day and provide a family oriented hub with a fair ground, stalls for community organisations and a wide range of live music and other cabaret entertainment in its usual site on the school playing fields next to Burnley Road. They will also have one of two large potted Christmas trees providing a focal point for a choir and brass band to perform/lead carols.

Calder Holmes Park in Hebden Bridge will host the Fair For Youth aimed at young people. They will have a variety of events, both to participate in as well as to watch, including live music, a hands-on arts and crafts tent as well as a range of sports and other activities.

Holme Street will be closed for a street party organised by the world famous Trades Club, with DJs, kids activities, bands and a bar.

Riverside School will host a Christmas Lunch for approximately 500 volunteers who helped out durng the floods and their aftermath.

The film, “Elf” will be shown at the Hebden Bridge Picture House with FREE admission treat for the towns folk and visitors alike.

St Georges Square in Hebden Bridge will have a 15ft potted Christmas tree, courtesy of Hebden Royd Town Council, around which the Hebden Bridge Junior Brass Band playing and various choirs will be carol singing. This will also be replicated in Mytholmroyd. These trees will then be replanted as a small part of the flood alleviation efforts.

There will be various performances of Christmas themed street theatre roaming around in all locations, including Mytholmroyd.

There will be six small artificial snow machines in various locations, courtesy of Thingumajig Theatre.

A Christmas Market in Hebden Bridge in Lees Yard.

The Town Hall terrace will be the venue for C I Adventures who will have a small climbing wall and maybe even a little cave for 8-16 year olds

The motorcycle club and 4×4 club who kept a protecting eye on the valley throughout the immediate aftermath of the flooding will perform a drive-through of Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd.

The business community will be having various offers and promotions to coincide with the day and many local pubs and other businesses will be doing their own thing. For example, the White Swan will be hosting an Aussie-Christmas-themed barbecue.

There will be two first aid posts, staffed by St John’s Ambulance. One in the town and one in Calder Holmes Park.

If THAT wasn’t enough, it is also the first day of the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival, so there are all sorts of other events happening. See www.hbaf.co.uk for more information about these!
