Celebrating 21 Years of Kingsgate – A new chapter unfolds
September 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Huddersfield Civic Society is delighted to welcome Jonathan Hardy – the man at the helm of the Kingsgate Shopping Centre, as it celebrates 21 years of trading and embarks on an ambitious development programme and expansion into the leisure sector.
Jonathan will reflect on how and why Huddersfield’s premier retail venue came into existence, the changing landscape of town centre retailing over the years and the challenges faced post Covid, Brexit and the cost of living crisis.
The story will take us through to the current day and the exciting construction and development activity you will now see underway as you visit Kingsgate today which will see the establishment of much-needed leisure facilities to encourage visitors into the town as Kirklees Council also embarks on the town’s ‘Cultural Heart’ programme.
You can expect an interesting talk supported by a range of visuals from the past, present and future, with the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation.
The presentation will be given at New North Road Baptist Church at 7pm on the 7 September and is expected to finish around 8:30pm.
Entry is free to HCS members, with non-members asked for a donation of £5. Those attending and wishing to become a member of HCS will be given the opportunity to become a member for an additional £5 on the night.
