Huddersfield gem welcomes open day for Huddersfield's Queensgate Market, Saturday 6 November.
Kirklees Council today announced, at short notice, the first ever open day for Queensgate Market Hall.
On Saturday 6 November there will be tours of the building to include the former market offices that form the two-storey panoptical structure in the middle of the market, the restaurant at first floor level now used as market offices (this has views across the market and the town) and its roof terrace. There will also be tours of the lower floors of the market that are used to supply the market.
Chris Marsden of Huddersfield Gem said "We thank the council for taking this step in participative consultation and encourage anyone with an interest in buildings to take up this unique opportunity to see this unique and innovative 1970 building. When people have seen the building with a fresh eye I expect them to want to take part in the consultation".
