It's Showtime! Never let it be said that Saltaire is a backwater when it comes to performing artists - just look at this line-up. It's only a pity that half of them are dead...
The Old Tramshed - which was at one time exactly that - is a thriving bar and restaurant at the top end of Saltaire. It gets somewhat mixed reviews on Trip Advisor but I hear that it has improved a lot lately and they are trying new ideas. It's quite a large space inside (see this photo) and The Gallery restaurant upstairs now holds art exhibitions of work by artists from the locality and further afield, which change every six weeks or so. They also have a programme of 'Dinner and Show' music events, including the tribute acts listed above.
I've mentioned The Old Tramshed before - see here for another photo and more info.
