Our Mission

You said: "Develop a dynamic space to support cultural activities, community growth and the local economy in the Calder and Ryburn Valleys."

Fire & Water is both a physical space in the heart of Sowerby Bridge and a wider local place-making initiative.

We’re on a journey with the people of Calderdale who want to create a multi-purpose venue for community and local economic activity, as well as a space to support arts, music and cultural events.

Our mission is constantly evolving through community consultation to reflect the goals, strengths and needs of the people.

Fire & Water takes an Asset Based Community Development approach to our activities. Building on the strengths of our people, with collaboration and development at the heart of everything we do.
