Centenary Patron

The Picture House has been at the centre of Hebden Bridge’s cultural landscape for almost 100 years, with an ambition to celebrate cinema and filmmaking in all its diversity, set in a magnificent setting that everyone can enjoy and feel a part of.

It seems fitting for its 100th birthday in 2021 that we invite you, the Picture House community and audience, to be Centenary Patrons of this wonderful space to help us deliver a rich programme of events and celebrations that the community deserves!

Your contribution to the Centenary Fund, set up by the Friends of the Picture House, will help us deliver a tailor-made year-long programme of special events including curated film programmes, silent film with live music, exhibitions, talks, a display of one of our historic projectors, an oral histories listening post and a special extended 2021 Heritage Open Day. As we go forward, we’ll keep you updated via the website and our social media accounts.

I would love to support and celebrate the Picture House centenary!
