Things you wouldn’t expect in Yorkshire:
Reggae in Huddersfield! Whaaat?!
Forget big cities such as London and Birmingham. In the 1970s and 80s, this West Yorkshire town was the unlikely capital of UK sound system culture
Experimental music in Shipley! Shipley!!1!

A pop festival in Bingley! No way!!!
The small Yorkshire town of Bingley may be an unlikely home for a major pop festival
Chorizo! Not even in a pie!
We’re proud of celebrating all that is British at Cool Places, which sometimes includes the more unusual stuff that you wouldn’t expect, like delicious, peppery & authentic chorizo – made in God’s Own County itself, Yorkshire!
