Culture and entertainment
Calderdale and its surrounding districts provide a wide range of leisure activities. This section of the survey was to find out what you think of the cultural and entertainment venues and how often you visit them.
The 3 most visited venues attended in the last three years were:
- Victoria Theatre, Halifax - 65%
- Piece Hall, Halifax - 39%

We then concentrated our questions on those respondents who have visited the Victoria Theatre. Over half of these visited the Victoria Theatre on average once or twice a year, around a quarter visited less than once a year, around a sixth visited three or four times a year, with the remainder (around 3%) visiting more than four times.
The 3 most popular types of performances at the Victoria theatre were:
