ON SALE | The full #HAFest2016 programme is now online!



The full #HAFest2016 programme is now announced and on sale! We’re absolutely delighted to present the brochure for this year’s festival, with a plethora of events for all to enjoy.

Following the fantastic string of shows that we announced last week, we’re now presenting the full range of performances, exhibition launches, workshops and events which will take place in Holmfirth this June.




Join us for the launch of the biannual Art In The Woods exhibition on Friday 17th, followed by our spectacular Handmade Parade Creature Carnival on Saturday 18th. Mark Steel‘s show is followed by musical magic from Manjula later that evening.

Sunday 19th sees a photography workshop, The Fenella Story and Kevin Boniface’s Recorded Delivery screening. Our Fenella in Photographs exhibition is launched on Monday 20th, and the Tales from Nabb screening and discussion precedes Tiger Tales on Wednesday 22nd. There’s also a Carnival Of Words workshop on the 20th.




We host innovative company Chicken Shop Shakespeare on Thursday 23rd, and Saturday 25th sees A Cage Circus performed; the result of two workshops (on the 21st and 25th). Sunday 26th offers you the chance to meet some of the Art In The Woods artists.

Over the second weekend, we host a range of Yorkshire Festival events in Victoria Park: including Them Two Dance, Upswing, Stefano di Renzo and Company Chameleon. These outdoor events are all completely free of charge!




Finally, our family events include a series of children’s workshops: including Word Circus, Into The Woods and Into The Garden. Finally, do you want to take part in our Creature Carnival, but are unable to make the art workshops? Why not try Pop-Up Samba!
