Art and About - 2021 Live Programme 

Holmfirth Arts Festival is nestled in the Holme Valley, surrounded by the glorious Pennine Hills of West Yorkshire. The Festival celebrates our unique and beautiful area by inviting the best local, national and international artists to respond to the theme of the environment, in all its diversity. 

This year's cracking live programme has something for everyone and includes and awesome outdoor programme,  installations in the landscape as well as an inspiring and entertaining indoor programme,  

​Highlights include award winning comedian Kieran Hodgson, a double bill of newly commissioned music, world music from the Scattered Collective, theatre from Daniel Bye and Boff Whalley and Biscuithead and the Biscuit Badgers bring the festival to an end with singalong and dance along mad cap tunes.

There are also loads of opportunities to get involved and bring your own creativity to the Festival See our participation page to take part in making living willow sculptures, creating an art trail and making, as well as taking part in, the History of Holmfirth Parade, 


If you already know Holmfirth and the Holme Valley, the Festival is an opportunity to see it a little differently.

If you’ve not yet discovered this beautiful part of Yorkshire then September is the perfect time to join us.

We are eternally grateful to this year's funders and donors.  We welcome  financial support throughout the year, so please do continue to donate via our various channels.  Your support goes a long way to bring the best artists and arts projects to the town.
