Founded in November 2017 on the site of former restaurant ‘The Three Lanterns’ and restored from its derelict ‘Marie-Celeste’ status (the building stood dormant for 17 years!) The Lantern is an independent Live Music Venue & Bar in Halifax, West Yorkshire.

We pride ourselves on an all-inclusive attitude and putting on killer shows that champion live music and those working hard to keep it alive.

As well as music we focus on providing impeccable beverages in a relaxed atmosphere.
