The Trades Club is a 200 capacity music venue and Socialist members cooperative located in the mill town of Hebden Bridge, on the edge of the Pennines. The building is coming up for its centenary and has been functioning since the early 1980s. The last 10 years have seen the club go from strength to strength with Heavenly Recordings holding three weekenders at the club with the likes of Mark Lanegan, King Gizzard and St Etienne performing. The club has seen exhibitions from Cold War Steve, literary events with Faber and Caught By The River, film events with Dexy’s and Edwyn Collins and comedian’s comedian Daniel Kitson making a regular stop at the club to work on new material. The Trades Club is at the centre of a flourishing young music scene in the Calder Valley with The Orielles, Working Men’s Club, The Lounge Society, The Goa Express and WH Lung forming and cutting their musical teeth at the venue.
