The Holmfirth Arts Festival


... to Holmfirth Arts Festival 2014, where we're inviting you on a journey of the imagination.

The 2014 Festival will celebrate and interact with the landscapes which have shaped the town's history - our exhibitions, walks and talks explore Holmfirth's vital connections with water, as well as marking the 70th anniversary of the 1944 floods.

As well as a real feast of arts events to enjoy, ranging from theatre to comedy, music to storytelling, this year we're encouraging all our audience members to take part. Our two community Sundays will celebrate the imminent arrival of the Grand D├ępart of the Tour de France, so please join us in creating the Yorkshire premiere of Kagel's Eine Brise (A Breeze) on your bike! We need 111 cyclists to create the first ever complete performance of the piece on Sunday 15 June, followed by a Holmfirth Sing in Victoria Park, reprising a Holmfirth tradition.

And Hope & Social bring their Tour of Infinite Possibility to Holmfirth on Sunday 22 June - it's a band anyone can join!

So join us and join in! Here are three ways to get involved:
