We are currently planning for 2018 when we will be bringing you a sparkling programme of music, theatre, comedy, exhibitions, workshops and new commissions.
Building on the highlights of 2016:
Record numbers of visitors came to the Arts Festival in 2016 to enjoy our amazing Creature Carnival, outdoor art in Holme Styes Woods, a new song cycle by Ian McMillan and Luke Carver Goss about Fenella the Tiger and some top notch performers: ranging from the comic genius of Mark Steel and Kieran Hodgson to the musical high notes of O Duo, the Sacconi Quartet and Manjula.
We had theatre and dance from Tutti Frutti, Company Chameleon and Them Two Dance and unbelievable circus skills from Upswing and Stefano di Renzo. All in collaboration with Yorkshire Festival.
And not forgetting Kevin Boniface and his inimitable take on the people and places he encounters on his postman’s rounds.
